If the Carolina Panthers have a strong 2021 campaign, we could see some coaches already have one foot out the door. 

The Carolina Panthers have many outstanding coaches. But some stand out more than others.

One coach has already been interviewed for head coaching vacancies. Other coaches have grown over time and organizations pay attention to that type of thing.

With the talent brought in, the Panthers can have a strong campaign and push for a surprise playoff spot providing everything clicks into place right away. People have question marks about certain players and the coaches want to erase those fears with strong production on the field.

The Panthers staff has changed a lot ever since the arrival of the new general manager Scott Fitterer from the Seattle Seahawks. Some familiar faces and new faces could see a potential promotion in their future.

With this in mind, here are four coaches in Carolina who could get promotions if the 2021 campaign is a successful one.

Joe Brady – Carolina Panthers OC

Joe Brady has shown flashes of being a great offensive coordinator. So great, that he has been interviewed by multiple NFL teams for a head coaching job. With former Panthers quarterback Teddy Bridgewater not working out, the former LSU passing guru now has a new project in Sam Darnold.

Brady can scheme up many things to help Darnold’s success and boost his own profile in the process. He used a gadget player that was unfortunately not re-signed by the Panthers well in Curtis Samuel, who eventually signed for the Washington Football Team in free agency.

When Christian McCaffrey went down, Mike Davis accumulated 1,000 scrimmage yards under Brady.

In total, four players gathered 1,000 all-purpose yards in Brady’s scheme: Davis, Samuel, Robby Anderson, and D.J. Moore.

Scott Fitterer brought in some of Brady’s LSU guys from his college days this offseason. The Panthers signed Stephen Sullivan and drafted Terrace Marshall Jr. at No. 59 overall.

Brady had success with both Sullivan and Marshall with the Tigers and plans to continue that in Carolina.

Many teams will pay close attention to Brady and what he does with this offense. He has plenty of talent at every position on offense and it will be exciting to see this new high-powered group at work.
