The Panthers announced they have agreed to terms with Buccaneers offensive coordinator Dave Canales, making him the seventh head coach in franchise history.

“Dave’s background is rooted in success,” Panthers owner David Tepper said in a statement. “He has an innovative mindset and positive energy that connects well with players and staff. We are impressed with his ability to bring out the best in players.”

Canales, 42, worked for the Seahawks for 13 seasons, following Pete Carroll there from USC. Eight of those seasons were spent alongside new Panthers president of football operations/General Manager Dan Morgan, who Carolina hired earlier this week.
