Who could Wilks call for help?

Mr. Scot

Recommended Posts

Suppose current OC Ben McAdoo continues to not be able to cut the mustard? Where could interim head coach Steve Wilks turn for help?

Obviously, you can't install a new offensive system in the middle of the season. That would leave Wilks searching for an on-staff replacement, with quarterback coach Sean Ryan likely being the only viable option.

But if Wilks we're to, say, reach out to someone who could come on board as a consultant to maybe call plays or assist in some other fashion, who would some of the options be?

Looking back at his history, the following names present themselves...

Norv Turner, Retired, Former Panthers OC

Turner and Wilks have worked together twice, first in San Diego then with Carolina. Norv would be readily available (as long as his wife agrees).

Jim Skipper, Retired, Former Panthers RB Coach

Skipper and Wilks we're on the Panthers staff together for a bit and he's been an OC before.

Freddie Kitchens, Senior Analyst, University of South Carolina

Kitchens has a consultant type role already at the college level. He and Wilkes were together in Cleveland along with OL Coach James Campen.

Rob Chudzinski, Special Assistant to the Head Coach,  Boston College

Another current college consultant, and an acquaintance of Wilks from their Charger days.

Todd Haley, Head Coach, Tampa Bay Bandits (USFL)

Haley was let go from the Browns and replaced with Kitchens. He's technically got a full-time job but this is his offseason.


Not a great best, but not a terrible one either.

Mind you, there are other potentially better options but most of them are currently employed elsewhere in the NFL.

Can't say I really expect anything like this to happen, but there are options at least.
