Former J.P. Taravella star football player Dan Morgan was officially named the new General Manager of the Carolina Panthers.
“Dave’s background is rooted in success,” Panthers owner David Tepper said in the official team press release. “He has an innovative mindset and positive energy that connects well with players and staff. We are impressed with his ability to bring out the best in players.”
A 1997 graduate from JPT, Morgan worked three years as the Assistant General Manager before filling the vacant position. Before attending and playing for the Trojans, he was born in Cliffton Heights, Pennsylvania. Morgan remained in Florida for college and attended the University of Miami, where he was a Conference Player before being drafted with the 11th pick in the 2001 NFL Draft by the Panthers. He played for nearly a decade in the NFL and was selected for the problem in 2004.
After playing, Morgan progressed from a scout to a General Manager. He spent eight years in Seattle and became the Director of Player Personnel with the Buffalo Bills before returning to Carolina.
Morgan takes the helm for a team that is on the rebuild. The Panthers finished the past season with the worst record in the NFL but will not have the first pick after trading up to get quarterback Bryce Young in the 2023 NFL Draft.
