Panthers hire Tyke Tolbert to coach wideouts

With Panthers receivers coach Richard Williamson, a member of the team’s original staff in 1995, retiring earlier this month, the team has found a replacement.

Tyke Tolbert is the new receivers coach, the team announced today.

Tolbert has spent the last six seasons with the Bills.  Prior to that, Tolbert spent a year with the Cardinals.  He previously worked at the college level.

“Tyke’s experience both as a player and coach provide him with a sound knowledge of the wide receiver position,” head coach John Fox said.  “He is a highly regarded coach and we think he will make strong contribution to our offense.”

Tolbert played college football at LSU from 1988 through 1990.

    Good luck to Tolbert. He’s got a long, storied history of failing to develop USC WRs to live up to.

    I hope he doesn’t clash with Steve Smith who’s only known one way of doing things his whole pro career.
    Go Panthers!
