It's Official: John Fox and Assistants Will Not Return

Hat tip to JC-SCO for breaking the news first a few hours ago. It seems worthy of more than a fanshot so lets discuss further in this thread.

From Charlotte.com:

"I told John today that I appreciate everything he has done for us over the last nine years, but as happens in this business, it is time for both sides to move in different directions," Richardson said in a release.

"While we haven't accomplished all of the goals we set as an organization when we signed him in 2002, we have certainly had our share of high moments -- the Super Bowl, two NFC Championship games and a division title in 2008. We wish John and his family the best going forward."

I know we had hoped DC Ron Meeks might return but it looks like the new HC will be able to bring in an entire new staff.

Happy New Year Panther fans!
