The Carolina Panthers have hired Frank Reich as head coach.
Carolina's search came down to Reich and Steve Wilks. Wilks went 6-6 as interim head coach after Matt Rhule was fired and was the sentimental favorite by Carolina players to get the job.
Reich is the first offensive-minded head coach hired in Carolina history, which played a big role in the decision over Wilks.
Reich was the starting quarterback of the Panthers for their first game in franchise history in 1995.
