Carolina Panthers should monitor Rich Bisaccia
After the Las Vegas Raiders overcame all odds to make the postseason despite the turmoil surrounding Jon Gruden’s firing, Rich Bisaccia can consider himself extremely unfortunate not to get a better shot at the head coaching job long-term.
Mark Davis went with the shiny new toy in Josh McDaniels. But there is no doubt about the impact made by Bisaccia at a time when Las Vegas needed inspiration more than ever.
Bisaccia might feel a little aggrieved with how things went down. He brought the very best out of the Raiders players at his disposal thanks to a unique blend of motivation and exceptional man-management.
He wasn’t out of work for long, joining the Green Bay Packers as their special teams’ coach. This might not be what Bisaccia was hoping for, but it keeps him in the game if nothing else.
The Carolina Panthers could use someone that players gravitate towards. Matt Rhule has been eager to become more approachable this offseason, but there’s just no telling for sure if this can have the positive effect he’s hoping for.
This might not be typical of the big splashes David Tepper normally seeks. However, the benefits of getting an experienced figure with proven credentials such as Bisaccia are there for all to see.
