AP source: Rhule files $5M arbitration suit vs. Panthers

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) – A person familiar with the situation says Nebraska football coach Matt Rhule has filed an arbitration suit with the NFL against the Carolina Panthers seeking about $5 million in offset severance compensation. Rhule was fired as Panthers head coach on Oct. 10. Rhule hired high-profile New York City litigator John Singer of Singer Deutsch LLP to handle the suit, according to the person who spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity Wednesday because of the arbitration suit has not been made public. A Panthers spokesman declined to comment. Rhule, reached by text, also declined to comment. CBS Sports was first to report the arbitration suit.
