American football player, a former college athlete and one-time coach of the Carolina Panthers. Capers coached the Panthers for three years beginning in 1995. He was extremely successful in taking a brand-new expansion team and making it successful. In the first year of the team's existence, Capers led the organization to a 7-9 record. His effort during this first year made him runner-up for the NFL Coach of the Year Award. In the second year of team play, Capers' effort was even more impressive; he led the team to a 12-4 normal season record that earned the team a playoff berth. The organization ultimately made it to the AFC championship game, but lost there. Still, Capers' accomplishments during this season earned him the 1996 NFL Coach of the Year Award. The next two years were dismal for the team. In 1998, the team won only four of its 16 games, which led to the firing of Capers.
Prior to coaching in the NFL, he also coached for a plethora of college teams, including, but not limited to: Kent State, California, and Ohio State.
Capers was married to his wife, Karen, in 6/1994.
