Panthers opt for Fox
John Fox
Fox helped the NY Giants to last year's Super Bowl
The Carolina Panthers have named New York Giants defensive co-ordinator John Fox as their new head coach.

Fox, the Giants' defensive coordinator since 1997, has reportedly signed a five-year contract worth an annual $1m.

The 46-year-old succeeds George Seifert, who was fired the day after the Panthers concluded an NFL-worst 1-15 season.

Carolina set an NFL single-season record with 15 straight losses after winning its opener.

The Panthers went 16-32 in three seasons under Seifert.

Before joining the Giants, Fox was the defensive co-ordinator with the Oakland Raiders.

Carolina also had been interested in Steve Spurrier, who resigned as coach at the University of Florida.

But he was eventually hired as coach of the Washington Redskins.
