NFL: Two former Panthers staff find new jobs

Recommended Posts

As previously discussed but now officially confirmed, former Panthers intern Jennifer King will be joining the Redskins staff. Her duties will basically be that of an Assistant Runningback Coach. She won't get the official title, but she will get paid as a full time offensive assistant.

Another name you might know is joining the Viking. Minnesota has announced that Dom Capers has joined their staff under the title of Senior Defensive Assistant. That's probably a good idea since Mike Zimmer made his relatively inexperienced son Adam the "co-defensive coordinator" (however that's supposed to work).

having dom capers as sort of a mentor/ a guy that can give advice here and there for your coaching staff is honestly a really cool move, more teams should do that kind of thing.

The expectation was that we were gonna do something like that. We didn't.

That's very cool. Hopefully, she'll get a fare shake to rise up the coaching ranks. I always rooted for her when she interned here several years ago.

I hope so as well. One thing that works in her favor is just how brutally competitive the NFL is. Head coaches who make these hiring and promotion decisions simply cannot afford to hire or promote anyone but the best candidate or they risk losing a competitive advantage relative to other teams. If she’s genuinely the best option, she should get opportunities.

The flaw with what I just said is it’s inherent assumption that NFL head coaches always make rational decisions when it comes to hiring and promoting. You’d think given recent local experience I’d know better so I guess call me an optimist.

You mean hiring your son as co-defensive coordinator is not based on rational thinking :D

I met Capers, Fox, and Rivera.  I liked Capers, but he was all business--nice, but not too interactive. 

I used to attend the OTAs and actually used to chat with Fox---he was a great guy--a guy you would love to have over for poker and a few laughs. We used to exchange one liners.  I got him good one day---He said, "you all have a nice summer."  I said, "you have a nice fall."  He was walking away, stopped started smiling, and came back to where we were standing.  And he said, "If we don't have a nice summer, we aren't having a nice fall."  So I said, "There for a minute, I thought you were coming back here to offer me a contract."  He died laughing at that.  I did not think it was that funny. 

The next year I said to him (we used to go 1 time each year) "Coach Fox, do you really believe a punt is a good play?"  He replied, "Sure it is.  Field position is how you win games."  I replied, "then perhaps you should run it more often."  He just shook his head like he pitied me. Then he said, "Aren't you the guy who gave me a hard time last year?"  I replied, "Yes.  Just give me a contract, and all this harassment will be over"  He said, "So would my career."

I started to get annoyed with his constant "note taking" on the sidelines while the team was getting blown out in his last two years.

He was the only coach we had that actually lost his locker room, his team. He never had the pulse of the players. We started out with all the gusto of a new franchise, a 2nd chance for many veterans, but he couldn't hold the team together once that wore off.

Side Note: One of the guys we interviewed for our QB Coach spot is now taking Joe Brady's old job at LSU.

Looks like one of our other candidates got a job too. The Jags are naming Ben McAdoo their QB coach.

Mike McCoy is still unemployed.

Still shocked that with the experienced choices we had, we opted for Jake Peetz.

TBH these female coach hires seem like more PR than anything. They love to get them in camera shots and say "first ____". I have nothing against these women, to me the NFL is just using them to look progressive.

    • I saw a lot of stuff during my 20 years in the Navy, some never meant for public consumption and some best left unsaid. But, I can unequivocally say that I have never even heard of nor could I ever imagine something like this happening in the Navy I served in. A civilian political appointee and the acting secretary of the navy calling a senior United States Navy Captain, Commanding Officer of a $4.5B warship which is probably the most powerful weapon in the world, Commanding Officer of a crew with squadrons embarked which totals over 5,000 sailors, "stupid" and "naive" ranks right up there with Trump making disparaging remarks about John McCain as a POW. Pretty sure that if I were the Command Master Chief, I would have told this guy after making those comments to get the fug off my ship. Fug them all. Fug this entire administration.
    • I'm staying busy as hell delivering groceries to Sam's clubs and walmart all across NC.   I had the good fortune of switching to food hauling a few months ago.  Looking like a good decision now.   If I lose my job, we really ARE in a world of trouble.   Good luck to all of yall
    • Because there has been a government contract already in place for 3M to produce the masks for several years and 3M was manufacturing per the contract. The most recent contract was signed March 12 and 3M was deliver $4.8M worth of masks by April 30. Apparently, that wasn't good enough for Trump who then began complaining when it was his own government people who signed the contract.
