Panthers add Paul Pasqualoni to coaching staff

Paul Pasqualoni

CHARLOTTE — The Panthers filled another key coaching staff vacancy Tuesday, adding another veteran assistant coach to the mix.

The team has agreed to terms with Paul Pasqualoni to be the new defensive line coach.

The 72-year-old Pasqualoni was head coach at Syracuse for 14 years, and Connecticut for three more. He has more than 40 years of total coaching experience, and 10 seasons in the NFL.

He has served as tight ends, linebackers, and defensive line coach during two stints with the Cowboys, and has also worked as the line coach in Houston and Chicago, and the defensive coordinator in Miami (2008-09) and Detroit (2018-19). He spent the last two seasons as special assistant to the head coach at the University of Florida.

Earlier this offseason, they hired longtime Packers assistant James Campen to coach the offensive line, and former Browns and Bears assistant Chris Tabor to lead their special teams. They need to hire a new wide receivers coach, after Frisman Jackson took the same job with the Steelers Tuesday.
