Former Carolina Panthers coach Fewell reportedly takes NFL office role

Perry Fewell was let go by the Carolina Panthers following an unsuccessful spell as interim head coach following the departure of Ron Rivera.

He was not out work long, with ESPN’s Kevin Seifert reporting that Fewell has joined the NFL league office for a job that will include supervision of the officiating department.

Fewell joins a long list of ex-coaches that have made the transition to office roles in recent years. The more high-profile of these include Joe Philbin and Jim Schwartz.

The move comes after the NFL decided to shake up its officiating department after a comedy of errors throughout the 2019 campaign relating to replay reviews.
