Report: Panthers get Shula

    The Panthers continue to fast-track their coaching staff, agreeing to a deal with former Alabama head coach Mike Shula to be their new quarterbacks coach.

    Shula agreed to the deal Friday afternoon, per the Florida Times-Union. The Jaguars have already elevated WR coach Todd Monken to Shula's old position.

    The Panthers have just five position-coach jobs left (RBs, WRs, TEs, DL, LBs), plus any quality control hires they might make.

Great hire for the Panthers..I like where this coaching staff is going. I just hope the draft can bring some quality players in to turn this team around! Go Panthers!

screw Dan Morgan he was a cancer of injury. somebody else... I do like the Ricky Prohel talks

What does injury have to do with his ability to coach? You are a cancer of stupid.

Panther4life>> You are right on with your comment about Tyler. Had it not been for concussions, Morgan could have been a hall of famer. I would put that right there alongside Proehl as potentially a great hire.

I would love to see Wesley Walls coach the tight ends. I think he still lives in Charlotte. Maybe Skipper will be convinced to stay for RB's and I like Proehl and Kevin Greene for WR and LB's.

Proehl will be an assistant WR coach thats it

hey guys, wouldn't ya just love to see moose in there working with the recievers somewhere? I can still see him blocking downfield for our running backs. I don't think we'll ever see a downfield blocker like him again. He'd make a fine teacher though!

I know, for running back coach we could get Biakapatuka. That way if someone breaks their bling chain, he'd be right there on top of it to make the necessary adjustment. Just messin with you guys. haha

I must admit the coching staff is not what I thought we would get. Very Young. But Riveria is getting probably his only chance so I trust that he knows what he is doing. The coaches will be very young and aggressive or qucik failures. It should be interesting.

I wouldn't mind some our former team leaders on the coaching staff , however experience is important in coaching also
Just because they were good players doesn't
mean they will be good teachers

Cancer of Stupid!!! LOL!!! HAHAHAHA!

Dan Morgan would be great. He could teach Jon Beason how to tackle skull-first.

Posted by: ASChin | Jan 23, 2011 3:43:14 AM

i think the Ricky Proehl talks are a great idea but to the Kevin Greene coachin the LBs idea its not gunna work since he is workin with Green Bays LBs i think stephen davis would work at RB coach i know he had a coaching internship with the team last year
