Panthers' Fox won't address reports of 2010 return
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) -- Carolina Panthers coach John Fox is saying little about his future.
After a report this week that said Panthers owner Jerry Richardson will allow Fox to return next season but won't extend his contract, Fox on Wednesday would only say that he's got a year on his contract and that "I have an agent that deals with that."
Fox declined to answer additional questions. When asked if he had talked to Richardson, he replied, "I am speaking English, right?"
The Charlotte Observer, citing an unidentified source, reported Monday that Fox, his coaching staff and general manager Marty Hurney would be "offered the opportunity to return next season."
Fox is due to earn more than $6 million in 2010.
