Source: Titans director of player personnel Monti Ossenfort is interviewing for the Panthers GM job today.— Albert Breer (@AlbertBreer) January 5, 2021
The Panthers are an interesting job. They appear to have a good head coach in Matt Rhule. They have a franchise player in Christian McCaffrey. They also own the 8th overall selection in the 2021 NFL Draft. On the downside, they don’t have a franchise QB on their roster.
One other thing to note here: General managers typically like to hire their own head coach. You’re unlikely to get that opportunity in Carolina, where Rhule is clearly their guy. How much does that matter to Ossenfort? We may find out.
The Titans have a really strong front office. They’ve improved their image around the league with five winning seasons in a row. It’s no surprise that someone like Ossenfort is getting interest.
