It didn’t even take until Black Monday for news to start breaking about scheduled head coach interviews with the Carolina Panthers. The team has been in the market for a head coach since firing previous head coach Matt Rhule on October 10th, 2022.
The following is a list of candidates, in alphabetical order, confirmed by either the Panthers, Jay Glazer, or reliable reporters with scheduled or completed interviews for the Panthers head coach vacancy.
General manager Scott Fitterer said that this wasn't going to be a large group of candidates. Since he said that, seven additional names have been confirmed as interview requests. That brings the Panthers candidate list up to ten confirmed coaches.
Current Michigan head coach Jim Harbaugh is not currently on this list because he reached out multiple times to the Panthers and spoke via phone with Panthers owner David Tepper. He’ll be added when and if the team formally interviews him.
Ejiro Evero - defensive coordinator, Denver Broncos
Sean Payton - former head coach, New Orleans Saints
Frank Reich - former head coach, Indianapolis Colts
Steve Wilks - interim head coach, Carolina Panthers, former head coach, Arizona Cardinals
