The Panthers have requested permission to interview Browns defensive coordinator Rob Ryan for their vacant head-coaching position, according to a report from PFW's Panthers correspondent Darin Gantt, of the Rock Hill (S.C.) Herald.

Ryan becomes the fourth candidate that Carolina plans to interview, with defensive coordinators Ron Rivera (Chargers), Perry Fewell (Giants) and Greg Manusky (49ers) already on the list.

Rob Ryan, who is the twin brother of Jets coach Rex Ryan and son of legendary coach Buddy Ryan, has 13 years of coaching experience as an assistant in the NFL.

The way we see it

While the Panthers' short list of candidates doesn't include a lot of flashy names, each candidate brings NFL experience to the table. Carolina is expected to go the coordinator route as the team attempts to turn things around.
