Carolina Panthers After a 12-4 season last year and a disappointing 33 to 13 loss to the Cardinals in the Divisional Playoffs. The Panthers have let go of Head Coach John Fox earlier this week in a surprising move. What's even more surprising is the the hiring of the Panthers new Head Coach. It has been announced that Claven will take over for John Fox's team. Coach Claven was not available for comment on his hiring but the Panthers organization has said that Coach Claven is expected to hold a press conference in the next few days.
