Panthers finalizing deal with Norv Turner as OC

The person spoke to The Associated Press Thursday on condition of anonymity because the team has not announced potential candidates for the position.

After initially giving Shula a vote of confidence on Monday, Panthers coach Ron Rivera fired him a day later saying that the team's offense needed a "different perspective" and "different ideas" going forward. "I really do. There's room for growth and he showed some growth this year and made some big steps".

Turner's son, Scott, who worked with the quarterbacks at the University of MI this past season, will be the new position coach for, according to another source.

He previously spent time as head coach with the Washington Redskins, Oakland Raiders and then San Diego Chargers, boasting a combined 114-122-1 record with four playoff appearances. He always has spoken highly of what Turner has done for him professionally and personally.

Norv and Scott will be the third and fourth members of the Turner family to join Carolina's staff. Norv's brother Ron is an offensive consultant, and his nephew Cameron is the assistant quarterbacks coach.

Scott Turner was the quality control coach at Carolina during Rivera's first two years (2011-2012). The Panthers are the seventh team to tab Turner as head of the offense, the last being the Minnesota Vikings from 2014-16.

Norv Turner will soon be back on the National Football League sidelines.

Still, he has worked with a wide range of quarterbacks throughout his career, including Troy Aikman, Philip Rivers, Alex Smith, Sam Bradford, Brad Johnson, Teddy Bridgewater and Doug Flutie among many others.

Earlier this season, Jordan made fun of Newton's elaborate clothing choices by referring to his "grandma hat" and his "Coachella onesie" after the Saints' Week 3 victory.
