What pressing items face new Carolina Panthers head coach Frank Reich ahead of his first campaign at the helm in 2023?

The reaction to Frank Reich becoming Carolina Panthers head coach has been largely positive. There is some dismay about Steve Wilks not getting the chance to continue his solid work as interim, but team owner David Tepper clearly felt this was the best way to progress the franchise long-term.

Reich represents a shift in approach for Carolina. He is the first head coach in franchise history with a true offensive background, which is also in keeping with the current successful trend across the league.

The former Indianapolis Colts head coach will speak for the first time in his new role on Tuesday. But there are many issues that demand his immediate attention.

With this in mind, here are four pressing items facing Reich before the 2023 season begins.
