The Carolina Panthers fired Frank Reich on Monday after just 11 games and there’s already one person that is interested in the job.
According to The Athletic’s Joseph Person and Richard Deitsch, Greg Olsen is interested in the Panthers coaching job should the organization approach him about it.
The 38-year-old Olsen pas spent the past two seasons as the color analyst on FOX’s No. 1 NFL broadcasting crew following his retirement after the 2020 season.
Olsen is a two time All-Pro and spent nine seasons of his career with the Panthers. His one season as a coach came from his time as his son’s Pop Warner coach so this would be a pretty significant leap for him to take.
Over 14 seasons in the NFL, Olsen racked up over 8,500 yards and 60 touchdowns. He was a two-time second-team All-Pro and three-time Pro Bowler.
