Biggs: Panthers hire special teams coach

The Carolina Panthers have filled their need for a special teams coach, promoting Jeff Rodgers from within to take the place of the departed Danny Crossman.

Rodgers was an assistant under Crossman this past season and was a special teams assistant for five seasons with the San Francisco 49ers. Crossman was fired after the season by John Fox.

“Jeff is an outstanding young coach and I am confident he will do an excellent job,” Fox said in a statement.

Crossman landed a job with the Detroit Lions and coached in the Senior Bowl this past week.
