Carolina Panthers Fire Head Coach Matt Rhule

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — The Carolina Panthers have parted ways with Coach Matt Rhule after the team fell to 1-4 following their home loss to San Francisco.

The Panthers home game Sunday basically looked like a home game for the 49ers with the amount of red shirts in the stadium. Rhule leaves behind an 11-27 record, according to the Panthers.

The 47-year-old will be replaced on an interim basis by defensive pass game coordinator/secondary coach Steve Wilks, per team officials.

Wilks, 53, spent one year as head coach of the Arizona Cardinals and has been on the Panthers coaching staff for six years.
