Carolina Panthers hire Dan Morgan as new general manager

The Carolina Panthers recently announced a familiar face as their newest general manager. The football team named former Panthers’ linebacker Dan Morgan as the team’s President of Football Operations and General Manager on Monday.

Outside of his history with the Panthers, the team chose Morgan due to his background in the personnel side of the NFL. He got his start in 2010 as a scouting intern for the Seattle Seahawks, before rising to the position of assistant director of pro personnel, and eventually director of pro personnel.

In 2018 Morgan joined the Buffalo Bills to work under their GM Brandon Beane as director of player personnel before returning to the Panthers in 2021 as an assistant GM.

Morgan had played several seasons with the Panthers, from 2001 to 2007, and played a major role in his teams’ defense during Super Bowl XXXVIII making 18 tackles, according to ESPN.

The team hopes that Morgan will be able to capitalize his personal connections with the team to give them an edge on the field. 

“Dan has a thorough knowledge of our football personnel and a clear vision to take us where we all want to go,” Panthers owner David Tepper said. “We know he will attack this opportunity with the same intensity he did as a Panthers player.”

This comes during a time where the Panthers are in a restructuring period within the team. According to the NFL, growing frustrations at the lack of improvement by Tepper had initiated the changes with the firing of their previous coach Frank Reich in 2023.Hopefully, Morgan will live up to those expectations put upon him by Tepper and others within the Panthers’ management.
