PANTHERS DISMISS COACH REICH
The Carolina Panthers fired Frank Reich on Monday following the team’s NFLworst 1-10 start in his first year at the helm. Panthers owner David Tepper announced the move hours after several news outlets reported he used a profanity as he was leaving the locker-room following a 17-10 loss to the Tennessee Titans on Sunday. Tepper hired Reich, shown, to fix one of the league’s worst offences over the past few seasons and develop
Bryce Young, the No. 1 overall pick whom he gave up four draft picks and top wide receiver D.J. Moore to acquire this past off-season in the hopes of winning multiple Super Bowls. Instead, the Panthers are assured of a sixth-straight losing season since Tepper bought the team in 2018 for US$2.275 billion. Special teams co-ordinator Chris Tabor will take over as interim head coach.
