Matt Rhule’s time in Carolina has come to an end.
According to Jonathan Jones, the Panthers are firing HC Matt Rhule as of Monday.
After Sunday’s loss, the Panthers are 11-27 in three seasons under Rhule. Carolina is averaging just 18.6 points and ranks last in the NFL with 271.4 yards per game this year.
When asked about his job security after Sunday’s game, Rhule deflected and said: “I hope you guys understand, I’m here to talk about the game. I’ve always been very forthright with you guys. I have nothing to say about that now. Really just here to just talk about the game today. I would never want to make this about me.”
Panthers’ defensive pass game coordinator/secondary coach Steve Wilks now takes over as Carolina’s interim head coach.
The Panthers will look to regroup before they visit the defending-champion Los Angeles Rams next Sunday.
