NFL Rumors: Panthers Likely to Eye Lions' Ben Johnson as HC to Work with Bryce Young

The Carolina Panthers are reportedly interested in Detroit Lions offensive coordinator Ben Johnson to fill the team's vacant head coach position, according to Dianna Russini of The Athletic.

"The expectation in the Panthers building is [team owner David Tepper] will try to lure Lions offensive coordinator Ben Johnson to Carolina after trying to hire him last season. Johnson decided to stay in Detroit last hiring cycle, but a league source told me Johnson is ready for a head coaching job now."

The Panthers recently fired former head coach Frank Reich on Nov. 27.
