Panthers fire 2 coaches after playoff loss to Saints

NFL Coaching Rumors: Panthers Find Strong OC Candidate, Packers Planning Interview, And More

The Carolina Panthers have fired offensive coordinator Mike Shula and quarterbacks coach Ken Dorsey, per a statement posted on the team's official website.

Shula spent seven seasons with Carolina, working as the quarterbacks coach before being promoted to offensive coordinator in 2013.

The moves came after the Panthers lost to the New Orleans Saints 31-26 in a wild-card game Sunday at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.

But both have paid the price for a poor passing season, the Panthers finishing 28th in the National Football League in passing yards and failing to take advantage of their fourth-ranked rushing game.

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 had been the quarterbacks coach for the past five seasons.

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. He and Shula were both credited by many in helping quarterback develop into an NFL MVP in 2015. However, he and Dorsey were unable to get that type of consistent production out of Newton and the passing game.
