Frank Reich brings sound offensive principles to the Carolina Panthers

As stated previously, one doesn’t have to look far around the league to see which direction the current trend is going. Teams with offensive-minded coaches are enjoying tremendous success, which is something the Carolina Panthers haven’t had the benefit of previously before Frank Reich’s arrival.

Reich is the first head coach with an offense-first background in franchise history. He is also a sound developer of young talent, which bares more significance to the quarterback position after transitioning well from a player.

This notion got lost somewhat over his final few years with the Indianapolis Colts. But matters outside of his full control resulted in veteran signal-callers past their prime coming in and failing to meet expectations.

There was always going to be a period of transition after Andrew Luck’s bombshell retirement. A situation that the Colts handled terribly and Reich paid the price with his job.

Reich’s sound offensive principles, professional methods, and ability to properly develop talent likely tipped the scales in his favor. If the right coaches come into the fold, then there’s a lot to like about Carolina’s chances of instant improvements.

And who knows, this change in direction could provide the spark that returns the Panthers to competitive relevancy.
