A couple of former Colts head coaches are expected to interview with the Panthers soon.

Jay Glazer of Fox Sports reports that the Panthers are set to speak with Jim Caldwell and Frank Reich as they look for a permanent replacement for Matt Rhule. Interim head coach Steve Wilks is also expected to be a candidate in Carolina.

Caldwell was 26-22 in three seasons with the Colts and took the team to Super XLIV. He then went 36-28 in four seasons with the Lions that included a pair of trips to the postseason.

Reich was fired by the Colts after a 3-5-1 start this season. He was 40-33-1 over his entire tenure in Indianapolis and went 1-2 in two trips to the playoffs.

Reich also started three games at quarterback for the Panthers in 1995.

  1. Caldwell is a good man. They won’t hire him but they should if they aren’t keeping Wilks.

  2. Caldwell had the Lions competitive and then they hired Matt Patricia – How did that work out.

  3. Both are quality coaches that got thrown under the bus by crap ownership. So was Wilks in Arizona. We see what Indy looked like after Reich was fired. Went from second place in the South and a dominant win vs Kansas City to might tie a college team if Jeff Saturday can remember how time outs work.

  4. No matter who they get as a coach what they really need to do is trade the Bears for that number one pick and go get C.J. That young man is going to be a super star.
