The winter conditions that have paralyzed much of Charlotte apparently haven't stopped the Carolina Panthers coaching search.
(Update: 2:05 p.m.) A league source has confirmed that San Diego defensive coordinator Ron Rivera is meeting Panthers officials today for his second interview. A team spokesman offered no comment when asked where the meeting was taking place, or whether owner Jerry Richardson, general manager Marty Hurney or team president Danny Morrison were here or on the road.
Rivera is the only candidate known to have been asked in for a second interview, and when they hired John Fox in 2002, he was the only candidate to interview twice.
Stay tuned for more on this developing story.
