Just saw on a press box TV that, according to the scrawl at the bottom of the screen, FOX's Jay Glazer is reporting that the Panthers don't want to spend big money on a head coach. Jay is a superior reporter, and doesn't feel as if he has to make things up to meet a quota. But he's wrong on this one. His source is.
Jerry Richardson, who owns the Panthers, has never been cheap. That he didn't renew John Fox's contract after the 2008 season doesn't mean he won't spend money. It meant he would not spend money on Fox.
