Carolina Panthers head coach salary is $8.5 million after signing a contract on 26 January 2023. It will keep him in Carolina till the 2026 NFL season.

The exact details of the four-year contract with the Panthers have not yet been disclosed. Still, we do know that the new head coach of the Carolina Panthers will earn $9 million annually as the Indianapolis Colts owed him $36 million in wages.

The Colts had extended Reich's contract through 2026 and during the 2022 season, he was fired and is still being compensated as of now.

The Panthers in the 2023 season have a completely new coaching staff with a lot of new faces. The Panthers have not qualified for the postseason since 2019 and are desperate for better results. The new unit is experienced and something that the franchise really needed.
