- Tyler Moody and Joel Rodgers
Eric Washington was recently named the Carolina Panthers new defensive coordinator, but his journey started long before coaching in the NFL.
In 1987, Eric Washington graduated from Northwood high school and went on to attend Grambling State University. At Northwood, he was coached by Jerry Burton. At Grambling, he played under legendary coach Eddie Robinson.
For the past seven seasons Washington served as defensive line coach for the Carolina Panthers. A defensive line that led the NFL in sacks from 2012-present.
Coach Washington joined Tyler Moody and Joel Rodgers Friday morning on Real Shreveport Sports, “Moody in the Morning” to discuss him becoming the defensive coordinator, how he plans to defend quarterbacks in the NFC South, and what it was like playing under Coach Eddie Robinson.
The interview was made possible by Northwood’s current principle, and Washington’s quarterback in high school, Shannon Wall.
Enjoy the interview, we sure did.
