Panthers GM Denies He’s Coach Searching

Panthers_Dave_Gettleman_2013Carolina Panthers General Manager Dave Gettleman described a report that he had already begun doing background checks for potential coaching candidates “unequivocally false.”

Gettleman denied the initial NFL Network report, via David Newton of, who said the G.M. was “adamant” it was not the case.

If he’s to be taken at his word, and there’s no reason to believe he’s lying, the Panthers are simply making a mistake.
