Former Panther President Mike McCormack, the first inductee to the Panthers Hall of Honor passed away this morning.

McCormack had a stellar NFL career both as a player and a coach before helping Jerry Richardson form a team in Charlotte:

Story " Mike McCormack, 1930-2013

McCormack also had a lengthy post-playing career in the NFL. He began a career in coaching starting as an assistant with the Washington Redskins starting in 1965. He also had three stints as a head coach with the Philadelphia Eagles (1973-75), Baltimore Colts (1980-81), and Seattle Seahawks (1982).

He served as Seattle’s president and general manager through 1988. The following year, he was hired as a key advisor to assist with a campaign to bring an NFL franchise to the Carolinas. McCormack was named the Carolina Panthers first President and served two seasons in that role before retiring after the 1996 season. He became the first member of the Carolina Panthers Hall of Honor.

Our condolences go out to the McCormack family on their loss.
