Charlotte, NC — After eight seasons with the Carolina Panthers, coach Mark Miller will not return for a ninth season. Coach Miller and the Panthers made the announcement earlier today. Miller missed the playoffs for a second straight season this year and has only made the playoffs three times in the eight seasons in Carolina.
“This was a hard decision but one that both parties agreed to.” said Panthers’ general manager Marty Hurney. “We’d like to thank coach Miller for a tremendous job he did here. Winning a Super Bowl in his first season here, something that has forever changed this franchise. We wish him the best in life and in his coaching career.”
Coach Miller has not released a statement yet.
In his eight seasons as head coach Miller went 67-61 in the regular season and had a post-season record of 4-2. His biggest win coming in Season 8 when his team won it all against the Oakland Raiders. His last playoff appearance was three seasons ago when he lost to the Philadelphia Eagles in the NFC Wild Card round.
At least I was above .500 even with these past 2 seasons, will be weird using a different team for sure.
Good luck to you my friend! Time to rise up and return to the playoffs with your new team.
I think Coach Miller had a good shot at improving the Panthers if he stuck with them. Not sure where it fell apart but I believe a good sign was when he was wheeling and dealing his roster. I will never forget losing to him in the Super Bowl.
