Scouting department shuffling

Side note: I do appreciate that both our previous GMs are still employed.  It gives Panthers fans a way to gauge our own team's progress.

Our previous head coach as well...

And more...

Can't say this is shocking. Beathard is the grandson of Marty Hurney's mentor and benefactor, the great Bobby Beathard.

Bobby had a pretty good legacy in Washington. He helped build three Super Bowl teams there.

Sad, gotta love a name like Beathard

We kept an OC in place for years because Jerry Richardson loved the name "Shula".

From what I've heard though (which, granted, isn't much) Beathard was good at his job.

Never cared about scouts until Kuechly was on. 

Now he isn't! 

We need answers!!!

We've got answers.

He needs a break and he wants to spend time with his family.

 Not sure if I like this addition. Patriots suck at drafting. 

Doesn’t mean this scout is bad. Could mean Big Bill is stubborn and trusts himself over the scouts?

At least our scouts don't have to deal with the bullsh-t the ones in Philadelphia and Washington do where they work their asses off all year just to watch the owner come in and make the pick himself.

Mentioned it in another thread, but last year the Eagles scouts had a player teed up for their second round pick when Howie Roseman (likely at the request of Jeffrey Lurie) went off script and took Jalen Hurts instead.

The player that was next up on the scouts draft board?

Jeremy Chinn.

Or we can compare against our former assistant GM

Found a little info on our new scout from the Patriots media guide...

Jonathan Howard is in his seventh season with the Patriots and his fifth as a scout. He joined the Patriots organization in May 2013 as a scouting assistant. Howard came to the Patriots from the University of Massachusetts where he spent the 2012 season as a volunteer defensive & recruiting assistant.

He played safety and linebacker at Washington University in St. Louis, where he graduated in 2012 with a degree in economics & strategy and marketing. He earned his master’s degree in sport management from the University of Massachusetts in August 2013.

A native of Cincinnati, Ohio, Howard graduated from St. Xavier High School where he was a member of the 2007 Division I state title team.

If St. Xavier High School in Cincinnati sounds familiar to you, it should. That's where our old buddy Luke Kuechly went to school.

Kuechly and Howard were teammates on that 2007 state championship team.
