Rob Ryan expected to be interviewed for Panthers head coach

+Read full article

As RantSports.com’s own Eric Schmidt indicated earlier on BrownsCentral.com, Cleveland Browns defensive coordinator Rob Ryan is expected to be interviewed for the Carolina Panthers head coaching job later this week. Rob–the brother of New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan–has been with the Browns since 2004, but has never handled the responsibilities of a head coach in the NFL.After finishing the season 2-14, the Panthers made the decision prior to Week 17 that John Fox and his assistants would not return to the team in 2011. In nine seasons as head coach, Fox recorded just three winning seasons with the Panthers–with the most recent being 2008 when they finished 12-4 and won the NFC South.

While numerous names will emerge for the new coaching position, it may not be a bad idea for Carolina to give Rob a chance–especially with all of the success is brother has seen in New York.

Watch Panthers' OT Michael Oher Slide On Levi's Stadium Turf

The condition of the turf at Levi's Stadium during Super Bowl 50 is a popular topic, and for one play Carolina Panthers' left tackle Michael Oher looked like he was on an ice rink as he protected Cam Newton's blind side.

Watch Cam Newton Put His Own Interests Above The Team

Millions of things have been said about Cam Newton, but this one instance in particular fires me up as a Carolina Panthers fan. With the score 16-10 Broncos, Von Miller knocks the ball out of Newton's hands which leads to a mad scramble. Newton has the opportunity to jump on the ball in the pile, but he decides to back away to protect himself from injury. In a one-possession game in the Super Bowl, Newton should've sacrificed every limb he has to get that ball back for his team, and it's extremely unnerving to me as a fan that he didn't jump in there.
