David Tepper could consider hiring front office executives from the Pittsburgh Steelers to run the Carolina Panthers.

The contract of Kevin Colbert is up after this season while Omar Khan is also a potential target.

Tepper was previously a minority owner of the Steelers and is in the process of selling his interest.

Tepper knows both Colbert and Khan and has worked with them. Colbert owns a home in Hilton Head, South Carolina approximately three hours from where the Panthers train.

Tepper did not fire general manager Marty Hurney, but he said nothing to ensure that Hurney would remain with the organization long-term.
