The Panthers have named former NFL wide receiver Greg Lewis as their new wide receivers coach. The 34-year old Lewis is a native of Chicago and played at Illinois where he was a walk on. He then played eight seasons in the NFL, mostly with the Philadelphia Eagles. He's probably best known for the pass and catch that he had with Brett Favre when they played for Minnesota in 2009. That won him an ESPY Award.
As a coach Lewis has only two years experience. In 2012 he coached for San Diego and this past season he coached for San Jose State. Star wide receiver Chandler Jones had 691 yards receiving before Lewis arrived, then 1,356 yards with Lewis.
