    EMERGENCY EPISODE: Carolina Panthers Hire Frank Reich

    EMERGENCY EPISODE: Carolina Panthers Hire Frank Reich

    The Carolina Panthers announced on Thursday afternoon that they would be hiring former Indianapolis Colts head coach and the first quarterback in franchise history Frank Reich as the team's next head coach. Frank earned the job over other finalists, Steve Wilks and Kellen Moore. Did David Tepper get it right?
    After being denied the head coaching job in Carolina, what happens with Wilks? Multiple reports suggested that the Atlanta Falcons were curious to see how things ended in Carolina for Wilks. Could he and Al Holcomb be headed down I-85 South to coach under Arthur Smith in Atlanta? Or, should Wilks stay on in Carolina as the defensive coordinator? Julian Council explains why that scenario is unlikely to happen and possibly not the best idea for the organization moving forward.
    The Panthers have their coach but they still need their quarterback. Reich has success in Indianapolis but he dealt with constant churn at the quarterback position, leading to his ouster earlier this season. Can Reich and the Panthers finally tab their quarterback of the future?

    Carolina Panthers Begin Second Round of Interviews. Plus, Jeff Duncan on the Market for Sean Payton

    Carolina Panthers Begin Second Round of Interviews. Plus, Jeff Duncan on the Market for Sean Payton

    The Carolina Panthers have begun their second round of interviews as interim head coach Steve Wilks, former Indianapolis Colts head coach Frank Reich, and Dallas Cowboys offensive coordinator Kellen Moore each met with Panthers ownership on Tuesday and Wednesday. Among those three, Frank Reich, the first quarterback in franchise history, has emerged as the favorite to earn the job according to several national NFL insiders.
    Reich represents a veteran head coach and provides the offensive background that Panthers owner David Tepper is reported to be looking for in his next coach. Is Frank Reich the best choice to turn the Panthers around?
    Former New Orleans Saints head coach Sean Payton interviewed with the Panthers on Monday but has not scheduled a second interview in Carolina or for any of the other franchises he's interviewed with. So is Payton likely headed back to his studio job at FOX Sports? Julian Council sits down with Times-Picayune/NOLA.com columnist Jeff Duncan to discuss the latest on Payton.

    Benjamin Allbright Shares Insights on the Carolina Panthers Coaching Search

    Benjamin Allbright Shares Insights on the Carolina Panthers Coaching Search

    The Carolina Panthers continued their coaching search by interviewing Dallas Cowboys offensive coordinator Kellen Moore on Tuesday but the organization hasn't made their intentions known on who the favorite for the job is three weeks into the search.
    The Panthers are notably interested in former New Orleans Saints head coach Sean Payton, interim head coach Steve Wilks, and Philadelphia Eagles Shane Steichen. Will one of those three become the next Panthers head coach?
    Benjamin Allbright of 850 KOA in Denver joined Julian Council to answer that question and provide insights on the Sean Payton Sweepstakes, Steve Wilks market, the Carolina Panthers search for a new head coach, and much more.

    Carolina Panthers Coaching Search | Panthers Meet With Sean Payton As His Options Grow

    Carolina Panthers Coaching Search | Panthers Meet With Sean Payton As His Options Grow

    The Carolina Panthers had their long-awaited interview with former New Orleans Saints head coach Sean Payton on Monday. While the Panthers were interviewing Payton along with New York Giants OC Mike Kafka, news came out that Payton will meet with the Arizona Cardinals for the first time on Thursday and that he's set to fly to Denver later this week to meet in person with the Broncos brass for his second interview with the organization. How interested in Payton in the Panthers job considering he's expanded his options?
    If the Panthers don't end up with Payton then who do they go to next? According to CBS Sports NFL Insider Jonathan Jones, the Panthers head coaching search could still end up with Wilks as the head man in Carolina. Panthers fans are divided on that prospect as some have dubbed Wilks "Ron Rivera 2.0". Julian Council tries to make sense of the negative connotation behind that moniker for Wilks.
    Several Panthers head coaching options were coaching during the NFL Divisional Round this past weekend. Julian looks at which candidates improve their stock and whose stock fell following the result of their respective teams over the weekend.

Great Podcast

Julian definitely knows his Panthers! I listen everyday and he provides great information and gives great insight !

Good podcast

Solid podcast, just think requesting “5 star reviews only” is cringe. Also not a fan of the host bringing his views up about things ie the vaccine. Otherwise great podcast one of my favorites.

Julian Council is not a Panthers fan

All Julian does is complain about the team. He has a negative outlook and everything Panthers and thinks David Tepper is a moron. He’s not fun to listen to. If you’re looking for a Carolina Panthers podcast, skip this one.
