Report: Panthers tab offensive coordinator

Looks like Ron Rivera is kicking his efforts to fill his coaching staff into high gear.

The Charlotte Observer reports that the Panthers have agreed to a deal with Rob Chudzinski to be their offensive coordinator. That comes after Chris Mortensen reported Sean McDermott will be their defensive coordinator and after the team announced that Brian Murphy will coach their special teams.

The Chudzinski hiring should come as no surprise. He interviewed for the job last week and had worked on San Diego’s staff with Rivera. Chudzinski was the tight ends coach for the Chargers.
