What’s next for the Panthers?

The Carolina Panthers will soon be heading to training camp, and they currently don’t have a General Manager.

The stunning news that G.M. Dave Gettleman has been relieved of his duties after four years, three playoff appearances, and a Super Bowl leads to an obvious question: What the hell do they do next?

As one league source pointed out, Brandon Beane would have been the odds-on choice for the job, if he hadn’t already bolted for the Buffalo G.M. gig. With Beane out of the mix, other names to watch include Titans director of player personnel Ryan Cowden, Bills assistant G.M. Joe Schoen, and Panthers director of college scouting Jeff Morrow.

“They love these three guys,” a league source told PFT.

We’ll find out in the coming days just how much they love each of them, or any of them. Whatever the Panthers do, it’s fair to assume that owner Jerry Richardson wouldn’t have fire Gettleman so late in the offseason without having a clear idea of what comes next.

    If they hire Scot I might jump ship to the Panthers… and then whichever team he mans 2 years after that.

    May be contending with the Bucs for last place in the nfc South….

    Strange time in the year to disrupt the office!

    Now is your chance, Florio. Apply for the job and show the world that you can do the job.

    As a close friend of the organization the belief around the front office is that a move for Scott Pioli is imminent. Rumblings are also that my friends in the ownership suite will try to poach away an under appreciated Thomas Dimitroff

    I guess they hit DEFCON 1?

    The timing sure is odd. Up until now, I would never have put Jerry Richardson in the same category as say, a Jed York, a Dan Snyder, a Woody Johnson, or Jim Irsay. There must be something going on that we do not know about yet.

    Regression to the mean.

    I know what should not be next – getting Ernie Acorsi to pick the next GM.
