Panthers HC Matt Rhule irked after offense celebrates 50-yard TD

The Carolina Panthers haven’t had much cause for celebration under head coach Matt Rhule, . And even when they do have that cause, as they did on Saturday, it’s pretty fleeting.

Quite the scene broke out during scrimmage action this morning, immediately after quarterback Baker Mayfield found receiver Rashard Higgins for a beauty of a 50-yard touchdown pass. The score prompted what was a particularly jubilant celebration from the wideout and his teammates, one—in fact—worthy enough of a taunting penalty from a camp official.

That, in turn, ticked off Rhule—who halted practice, yelled at his players and made his offense run the sidelines.

Rhule told reporters following practice that although celebrations are encouraged, they must come at the right time.
