After a crushing defeat, an NFL team fires multiple coaches.
Sunday afternoon's game between the Carolina Panthers and the Cincinnati Bengals ended in a 42-21 loss for the Bengals following a 42-7 third-quarter lead before the Bengals
introduced replacement players. It appears that the Panthers are making some rather big changes as a result.After Sunday's terrible defensive effort, Panthers interim head coach
Steve Wilks made the announcement that the team was parting ways with defensive line coach Paul Pasqualoni and cornerbacks coach Evan Cooper.
The decision was made after the team's performance on Sunday was dominated both in the air and on the ground. While Joe Burrow completed 22 of 28 passes for 206 yards and one
touchdown in the air, Bengals running back Joe Mixon set a franchise record with five touchdowns in the contest, four of which came in the first half.
With Cooper gone, the team's cornerbacks will be coached by defensive assistant Bobby Maffei, interim defensive coordinator Al Holcomb, and pass rush specialist Don Johnson,
with assistant defensive line coach Terrance Knighton filling in as the defensive line coaches.
With a matchup against the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday, the group has an opportunity to turn things around.
