John Fox has the option to leave town

According to a report from ESPN.com’s Adam Schefter, the Panthers have given John Fox permission to opt out of his contract should he be enticed with a better coaching situation than the 1 year remaining on his contract with the team.

The only head coaching jobs that are available at the time are with the Seahawks (who appear to have Pete Carroll waiting to sign a contract) and the Bills — neither of which would be an upgrade from Carolina, unless they threw insane amounts of money and years in Fox’s direction.

If a job comes available that Fox would be interested in, he now has permission to leave. I don’t think he will, because he seems like the type of guy who finishes what he starts.

I hope he decides to stick around for one more year, because a shake-up at the top is the last thing this team needs if it wants to make a Super Bowl run in 2010.

    I don't think he's a bad coach at all. He should have made the switch at QB sooner so maybe loyalty is his flaw. I can't think of many better options that wouldn't break the bank to get.
