Frank Reich was named the new head coach of the Carolina Panthers on Thursday.

Reich becomes the sixth head coach in Panthers' franchise history. He also served as the first starting quarterback for the franchise in 1995, and he tossed the first TD pass in team history.

Reich, 61, joins the Panthers after being fired by the Indianapolis Colts nine games into the 2022 season. He posted a 40-33-1 record in four-plus seasons in Indianapolis.

Steve Wilks served as the interim coach of the team after replacing Matt Rhule, who was fired Oct. 10 after a 1-4 start. Carolina finished with a 7-10 mark and has missed the playoffs in each of the last five seasons.
