Cincinnati native and former St. Xavier High School Bombers standout Luke Kuechly resigned a few weeks ago from his job as a pro scout for the Carolina Panthers, according to a report Monday via Twitter from NFL Network's Ian Rapoport:
Kuechly accepted a position with the Panthers' front office as a pro scout last June. His role was expected to involve watching film, player evaluation and advance scouting.
The Panthers appear to have removed from circulation Kuechly's No. 59, which he wore throughout his eight seasons as a player for the team before announcing his retirement in Jan. 2020.
Kuechly is among 2021 St. Xavier Athletic Hall of Fame inductees set to be honored in August at the school.
