Panthers interviewing Morgan, others for Assistant GM job

The presumption is Rhule has final say.

Org chart:

 Tepper > Rhule > Fitterer/GM > Assistant GM

----------------------------

If Rhule really does have final say the GM and Asst. GM are really serving in senior scouting/analytical roles...

...fancy titles but their responsibilities don't correlate with those who have similar titles at other NFL franchises who are employing the "traditional" (archaic) NFL model.

Actually, per Rhule's own words, Fitterer ran the draft and free agency processes. Which makes sense because that's kind of, you know, his job.

Also according to both Rhule and Gantt, David Tepper stays out of the football decisions and lets his coach and GM do what they were hired to do.

And I happen to think that's great 😁

Rhule has final say, not "the GM".  (as per other poster)

Absolutely nothing was said about Tepper as it goes to "football decisions".

Nobody cares what you think.

Since when does the HC have the say. The GM is the one who does the hiring/firing and that also includes the hiring/firing of HC position as well. Rhule don't have any say in the matter but he can recommend someone and that is it.

Discussion of Matt Rhule's interview with Rich Eisen wherein he gives the quote, "Dave leaves the football stuff to me and Scott" can be found here.

Likewise, here's a quote from Darin Gantt's article about draft night in the Panthers war room.

Tepper's an active participant in the process. Not in terms of this player or that guy, but making sure every one in the room is taking the right steps to every decision.

Again, these are from people actually connected with the team, not internet guys who watch Showtime.

"Coach centric" is probably a better description. 

Our front office is modeled after the Seahawks, where Pete Carroll has final say.

Rhule has made it pretty clear that he's not a dictator though. Scott Fitterer runs the personnel processes and he ran the draft, though Rhule and the coaching staff helped set up the draft board.

It's not like Belichick.

    • It’ll help him off the field for sure. He’s needed this. 
    • The Panthers’ move to get corner C.J. Henderson is, indeed, an aggressive one. And a big part of why it’s a gamble is figuring out what Henderson mindset is. Much of the issue with Henderson, and trouble in getting him going the last few months, stemmed back to a simple question: How much does he really want to play football? Yes, I know people get upset when a player’s love for the game is questioned, but that was a very real thing for the Jaguars, and is especially vital when you consider how Henderson’s potential as an athlete has outpaced his production as a player. The Jaguars did their best the last two months to try and get the best from Henderson, and now the Panthers will get a swing at the same challenge. And if it works out, they’ll have two corners drafted in the top 10 playing on rookie deals when Jaycee Horn gets back from injury. But the “if” here is indeed a big one.  • So why do the Panthers feel good about it? Their corners coach, Evan Cooper, gave Henderson his first scholarship offer, when Henderson was still on his high school’s J.V. team, and Cooper was on staff at the University of Miami. The two have remained in contact since, and so Cooper’s background with Henderson was a factor in bringing him in. Based on that background, there’s also a belief that Henderson will be a better fit for Matt Rhule’s program than he was for Doug Marrone or Urban Meyer. And we’ll invoke the “if” again here … If it works out, the Panthers really just moved one of their picks in April down two rounds (they sent a three to the Jags and got a five and TE Dan Arnold back), and they’ll have him for less than $1 million for the rest of this year, $2.48 million for next year and $3.41 million in 2023. https://www.si.com/nfl/2021/09/27/maqb-week-3-panthers-trade-for-cj-henderson-fields-belichick
