Panthers fire 2 coaches after playoff loss to Saints

Panthers fire 2 coaches after playoff loss to Saints

The Carolina Panthers have fired offensive coordinator Mike Shula and quarterbacks coach Ken Dorsey.

Newton, as the quarterback, is the focal point on offense but is in need of more support to help his efforts. Also, having a few veterans at key positions in addition to a dynamic young running back will aid in the process.

This comes one day after head coach Ron Rivera seemingly indictated that their jobs would be safe.

However, Rivera made the decision to fire Shula, the son of legendary Miami Dolphins coach Don Shula, after a meeting with general manager Marty Hurney.

Rivera was vague on exactly what bothered him about the offense this past season and prompted the change in thinking, but when asked about the team's lack of an identity he said, "you want to be able to understand this is who we are and this is what we do". He also wants to see the ball in Christian McCaffrey's hands in open space. However, he and Dorsey were unable to get that type of consistent production out of Newton and the passing game. He had success in his first season in 2011 en route to helping quarterback Cam Newton earn the AP Rookie of the Year Award after Carolina drafted the Auburn product with the No. 1 pick. A star quarterback for the University of Miami (FL) in college, Dorsey had an undistinguished seven-year playing career in the National Football League and CFL before transitioning to coaching.

As for Dorsey, he spent the last five seasons as the Panthers' quarterbacks coach after two years as a pro scout.
