The Kyle Bailey Show

When Charlotte decided to move from Will Healy last year, it was a necessary change for a program, that had relatively underachieved during his tenure, after his first season on campus. With the Charlotte program set to transition to the American Conference this year, the program had to identify the right coach, to help elevate the program to one that could contend in a tougher conference. They identified, Biff Poggi from Michigan, where he served as the associate head football coach to Jim Harbaugh, and was credited for helping get the Wolverines to back-to-back College Football Playoff appearances. Poggi made his name in the football world at the high school level, coaching for twenty years at the Gilman School, and at Saint Frances Academy, a powerhouse in the high school ranks. His coaching stint followed a successful career on Wall Street, where Poggi made himself a millionaire. 

Earlier today, reports surfaced that the Panthers are luring in the sweepstakes for potentially landing free agent wide receiver, DeAndre Hopkins. Carolina has made moves to bolster their wide receiver room this off-season, as they drafted Johnathan Mingo out of Ole Miss, and signed veteran Adam Theilen. Even with those moves, the Panthers wide receiver core is still considered among the worst in the NFL and could be what limits Bryce Young's success as a rookie. Ever since David Tepper fired Matt Rhule last October, and decided not to retain interim head coach, Steve Wilks, this organization has been "all in" bringing in a star-studded coaching staff, headlined by Frank Reich, in addition to trading up to #1 to draft the aforementioned Young.

Virtually ever since Scott Fitterer became the general manager of the Carolina Panthers, one of the things he's been adamant about is that Brian Burns is going to be in Carolina for the foreseeable future. Evidence of that, was the trade deadline last year, when the Rams offered Carolina, two first-round picks, along with a second, and Carolina declined the offer. The fifth-year pass rusher out of Florida State is getting ready for the 2023 season, and he's awaiting a new contract after Carolina picked up his fifth-year option, which is set to pay him $16 million dollars. Last year Burns recorded 12.5 sacks and was named to his second Pro Bowl, as he's proven in his young NFL career, that he can be a productive player, at the premium position on the defensive side of the football. With all of that in mind, how much should he get paid?

With the belief around the NBA, that Miles Bridges will be back in Charlotte for the 2023-24 season, a lot of people are starting to speculate about the possible contract Bridges will receive. Before his domestic violence issue, on the eve of free agency last summer, Bridges was in line to receive a max contract from Charlotte, after Bridges had a career year. After a year away from basketball, Bridges is still in line to get a big payday, as Jake Fischer of Yahoo! Sports, expects him to make around $25 million dollars, and John Hollinger of The Athletic, echoed that belief, saying he could receive a contract worth $29 million dollars annually. Is this right? Or should Bridges be paid less, after his off-the-court issue?
