Carolina Panthers defensive line coach Sam Mills III added a new responsibility to his duties.
Mills will now serve as a game management coach to assist head coach Ron Rivera “clock management, replay challenges and other situational football analysis,” the Panthers announced Wednesday. Entering his 15th season with the Panthers’ coaching staff, including the last eight as a defensive line coach, Mills provides plenty of knowledge to help Rivera
“Sam sees the game from a different perspective,” Rivera said in a statement, via the Panthers’ official website. “He’s very interested in how the league operates, how the game operates. By that I mean he’s a guy that pays attention to the rules, he pays attention to replay and he understands time management and score management.”
Three Panthers coaching moves now official:
– Sam Mills III tasked with game management
– Everette Brown now assistant LBs coach
– Ben Jacobs now assistant ST coach https://t.co/SYUKPXXWUe

I thought knowing the rules, understanding the score and clock management was the job of the Head Coach.
They get paid enough.
