Or if he wins the opener next year.
But he is already the winningest regular season coach
Also Seifert is doing well retired in Nevada...rooting for the 49ers and no hard feelings.
Seifert, who also served as the team’s de facto general manager during his three years, did give the Panthers a great going-away present. His final draft was the best the Panthers ever had. He picked linebacker Dan Morgan, defensive tackle Kris Jenkins and wide receiver Steve Smith in the first three rounds of the 2001 draft. All eventually made the Pro Bowl, and Smith became the best player in team history.When I remarked that Smith was still here 13 years later and that the Panthers should be indebted to the former coach for that, Seifert laughed and said: “You could also say I gave them an opportunity to get a pretty good pass rusher – a guy who helped them get to the Super Bowl. Out of something bad came something good, right?”Seifert was referring to that 1-15 season of 2001, which was so bad it allowed the Panthers to draft Julius Peppers with the No.2 overall pick in 2002.
