McCarthy has been named as a potential candidate ever since the Panthers’ job became available. McCarthy and Panthers owner David Tepper both hail from Pittsburgh, and Tepper has deep ties to the city.
McCarthy is 125-77-2 as an NFL head coach, and has a Super Bowl win to his name. If Carolina is looking for experience, particularly in the postseason, he very much has it. However, there were plenty of rumors that he and Aaron Rodgers did not see eye-to-eye in their final days in Green Bay, and there were some other unflattering reports about the coach at the time that he firmly denied.
