The Panthers have reportedly filled yet another assistant coaching position, this time hiring Bulldogs inside LB coach Warren Belin to coach LBs at the NFL level.
Carolina has an opening for a linebackers coach on the staff of new head coach Ron Rivera. The Panthers’ new defensive coordinator is Sean McDermott, who worked with Belin in 1998 on the William & Mary staff.
Belin, 43, is a native of Marshville, N.C., and played at Wake Forest. He was hired at Georgia last year after spending eight years at Vanderbilt as a linebackers coach.
I'm going to resist the massive urge to 'Dawg' this selection given my well known bias against the Bullpups! If anyine else has some input on this hire chime on in. I will say the Bulldogs have put out some good LBs in their day, most recently Rennie Curran, Odell Thurman and Boss Bailey. I probably include Thomas Davis on the list though he played FS at UGA. Obviously Belin didn't have anything to do with these players since he was only there one year. Maybe it rubbed off on him.
