Canales is Mexican-American, making him only the fifth Latino head coach in NFL history.


Dave Canales’ father was Pastor Isaac Canales, a polio survivor who rose from the barrio to Harvard. Throughout history, there are countless stories of influential fathers who have played a significant role in shaping the lives of their children.


With the Panthers’ appointment, Canales becomes the only active Hispanic head coach in the NFL. His grandparents, Miguel and Lupe, immigrated to California from Mexico in the early 1900s. His grandfather served under General George Patton in World War II.

The previous coach was Ron Rivera, former Panthers and Washington Commanders coach; Brian Flores, current defensive coordinator of the Minnesota Vikings and former head coach of the Miami Dolphins, who is of Honduran descent; Tom Fears, who was born in Guadalajara, Mexico and was the head coach of the New Orleans Saints from 1967–1970; and Tom Flores, who was the first Hispanic head coach in the league, and won three Super Bowls while coaching the Oakland and Los Angeles Raiders from 1979–1987.
