Panthers fire O-coordinator Mike Shula, QBs coach Ken Dorsey

Norv Turner among candidates to become next Panthers OC

"I don't think so", Rivera said during a press conference on Monday when asked if he planned any coaching changes.

The Carolina Panthers fired offensive coordinator Mike Shula and quarterbacks coach Ken Dorsey, the team announced Tuesday.

Team officials did not say who the Panthers plan on pursuing as Shula and Dorsey's replacements. Also, having a few veterans at key positions in addition to a dynamic young running back will aid in the process.

"That is what the move was made for".

The news came one day after coach Ron Rivera had seemed to give his entire coaching staff an endorsement.


He started to have second thoughts and chose to meet with interim general manager Marty Hurney about the decision. I'll evaluate the coaches, the scheme and we'll go from that. The only other time Newton threw as many interceptions was his rookie season when he threw 17. Carolina entered as the No. 5 seed following a 11-5 finish to the season. However, he and Dorsey were unable to get that type of consistent production out of Newton and the passing game.

It didn't help that the Panthers suffered several injuries at wide receiver and tight end this season and traded away No. 1 receiver Kelvin Benjamin.

This past season, Newton posted a QB rating of 80.7, which ranked 18th in the league.

He and Shula were both credited by many in helping quarterback develop into an NFL MVP in 2015.
