The Panthers coaching search isn't expected to take much time, and they appear to have already begun the process.
ESPN.com reported, and it has been separately confirmed, that both the Panthers and Browns have requested permission to interview New York Giants defensive coordinator Perry Fewell.
The Gastonia native has also worked as the interim coach of the Buffalo Bills.
While the team hasn't made any statements, the braintrust of owner Jerry Richardson, president Danny Morrison and general manager Marty Hurney are expected to talk to reporters Tuesday.
