Tolbert replaces Williamson as Panthers WR coach

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- The Carolina Panthers have hired Tyke Tolbert as receivers coach.

The move on Thursday comes three days after longtime assistant Richard Williamson announced his retirement from that position.

Tolbert had been in the same job with the Buffalo Bills for the past six seasons. The former LSU receiver also spent a year as receivers coach for the Arizona Cardinals.

There is still one opening on coach John Fox's staff. Special teams coach Danny Crossman hasn't been replaced after being fired earlier this month.
