If the Carolina Panthers players have anything to say about it—and they most certainly should—Steve Wilks will have himself a decent chance at being named head coach in 2023. Oh, and another Carolina Panthers player just had something to say about it.
The latest endorsement comes from center Bradley Bozeman—who was short, sweet and to the point. Bozeman, in a reply to an Instagram post from The Riot Report, expressed his support for Wilks on Thursday.
Q: “Would Steve Wilks be the right hire for HC?”

Carolina’s man in the middle got his first start of the season back in Week 7, the second game of Wilks’ current run as interim head coach. Since then, Bozeman has played an integral role in establishing an actual identity for what was a previously struggling offense—which is something we can, obviously, also attribute to Wilks.
Prior to Bozeman’s “Yes,” teammates Austin Corbett, Derrick Brown and Shaq Thompson have publicly backed Wilks as well. Brown, who doubled down on his approval this week, said the following on Dec. 27:
“I’ll speak for everybody in that locker room and say that we want Coach Wilks to be our next head coach,” he said on Good Morning Football. “That’s for sure. I think every single week when we come in, he’s gonna tell you exactly how it is. He doesn’t sugarcoat nothin’. He keeps it plain Jane, per se. He lets you know exactly what’s going on.
“You can be one of the best players, but you walk into that building on Monday and he’ll tell you exactly how he felt about how you played. And that level of clarity—that’s exactly what we want.”
Hopefully for the Panthers, Bozeman—a soon-to-be free agent, makes a return himself this offseason. After all, who else is going to do the helmet thing?
