Panthers fire offensive coordinator Shula, QBs coach Dorsey

The Carolina Panthers have fired offensive coordinator Mike Shula and quarterbacks coach Ken Dorsey, per a statement posted on the team's official website. Carolina finished 19th in total offense with 323.7 yards per game and 28th in passing offense with an average of 192.3 yards per game.

Dorsey had been the Panthers' quarterbacks coach the past five seasons and Shula was the offensive coordinator since 2013.

The son of the Miami Dolphins' best coach in franchise history and one of the top quarterbacks to come through the University of Miami are now looking for new jobs.

According to a report by Ian Rapoport at NFL Network, Norv Turner is among the candidates that coach Ron Rivera and the organization are considering to become the team's next offensive coordinator.

Dorsey served as quarterbacks coach from 2013-17 following two seasons as a pro scout.

Shula has coached 30 years, including 26 in the NFL.

Also, Newton's passing numbers have taken a nosedive since he was selected as the league's MVP in 2015 when he combined for 45 touchdowns - 35 passing and 10 rushing - and led the Panthers to the Super Bowl. Carolina entered as the No. 5 seed following a 11-5 finish to the season.
