Fox Remains Coach of the Panthers – For Now

John Fox

John Fox has three years left on his contract to be head coach of the Carolina Panthers.  Will he finish it?  He is the head coach of the Panthers for now, despite the team wrapping up a 7-9 season that saw them win a meaningless game on Sunday over the Tampa Bay Bucs in Tampa.  Fox stated on Monday that he feels he will remain as the Panthers top guy.  “Our ownership has been very supportive, very positive,” said Fox, “I never have foreseen changes with Marty or myself, and I don’t anticipate them moving forward. I don’t have a crystal ball. I can’t predict the future. There has been plenty of speculation, I will say that. But I don’t see it changing from any years past.”

The Panthers should take a card look at other coaches, as while Fox has been a solid coach for Carolina, the bottom line is the fan base is growing stale of him, and there is some thought that the players have tuned him out.  Two years ago the team made the NFC Title game as they stunned the Bears in the divisional game and then gave the Seahawks a run for their money before losing.  Last season they underachieved, and this year with QB Jake Delhomme getting hurt and an offense that couldn’t do much, the team was doomed from the start.

“I’ve got three years left on my contract that I intend to uphold,” Fox said. “I’ll just say that.”
