What were some major observations from Carolina Panthers offensive coordinator Thomas Brown’s first presser since taking the job?

It’s been a busy week in the Carolina Panthers media room as Frank Reich and other recent hires introduce themselves to fans and the media. The head coach left no stone unturned to secure one of the most prolific staff teams in franchise history, which can hopefully steer the playing side of things in the right direction before the 2023 campaign.

One of the most important acquisitions to the set-up was Thomas Brown. The offensive coordinator comes with a blossoming reputation and even though he won’t call plays initially, Reich outlined his desire to relinquish this responsibility at some stage – although when that comes has yet to be determined.

Brown is a supreme leader of men that gained head coaching interest this year. Providing he thrives during his latest rise up the coaching ladder, then another promotion to a top job somewhere down the line is almost guaranteed.

Without further ado, here are four major observations from Brown’s first presser as Carolina’s offensive coordinator.

Thomas Brown’s contribution to Carolina Panthers’ staff

The prospect of working alongside some supremely talented Carolina Panthers coaches was obviously a big selling point for Thomas Brown. He called this the best staffing group he’s been part of, which is high praise considering the Los Angeles Rams won a Super Bowl under Sean McVay.

"“We’ve got a dream staff. In my opinion, it’s the best staff, on paper, I’ve ever been a part of. Tons of experience, different backgrounds. To me, it’s always about what’s right versus who’s right.”"

Obviously, the staff will mold the players as best they can. But there’s also a real collective approach mentality emerging this offseason, which is night and day from the Matt Rhule era.
