One more season with Mick Mixon

Recommended Posts

I'm guessing it's not a voluntary retirement?  

Mick wasn't as bad as people made him out to be, but he wasn't as good as what we had either.  I think he fit an aesthetic Jerry was looking for - down home, wholesome, country, folksy, etc.  I could tell from that first interview he did with Tepper that preseason once he bought the team that he wasn't going to be around much longer.  

It would be cool to bring Bill back.

Tepper seems to like going young when he's hiring somebody new, and he doesn't really have any nostalgia with regard to Rosinski so I don't think he'll go that route.

Jim Szoke has been doing the preseason play by play for the Panthers since their inception. I don't remember if he was given an audition for the job when they hired Mixon, but he really should be now.

It wouldn't surprise me to see Taylor Zarzour or someone like him get the job though. Not that Jim Szoke is all that old, but I'm pretty sure Zarzour is younger (and probably better known outside the Carolinas).
