Matt Rhule files complaint against Carolina Panthers, says he’s owed millions

CHARLOTTE — Former Carolina Panthers Head Coach Matt Rhule says the team owes him millions of dollars, and he’s now filed an arbitration suit for offset severance compensation, ESPN is reporting.

A source told ESPN that Rhule is seeking about $5 million that he says the team still owes him after he was fired on Oct. 10. The exact amount of money being disputed wasn’t specifically mentioned by the source.

Rhule, who is now the head football coach at the University of Nebraska, has filed the complaint with the NFL through an employment attorney based out of New York.

Neither the Panthers nor Rhule’s legal team gave a comment, according to ESPN.

Rhule was fired early in the 2022 season after an 11-27 overall record.
