Panthers fire offensive coordinator Shula, QBs coach Dorsey

Head coach Ron Rivera recently signed a two-year contract extension with the Panthers and now faces rebuilding his offensive coaching team.

But, Carolina has already started to clean house with their staff, with the announcement today that both offensive coordinator Mike Shula and quarterbacks coach Ken Dorsey have been relieved of their duties.

Coquelin initially impressed when given a sustained run in Arsenal's first-team in 2015 but his performances were heavily criticised in the second half of the previous campaign, during which the Gunners' season unravelled spectacularly.


Newton, as the quarterback, is the focal point on offense but is in need of more support to help his efforts. After another season where a lack of offensive consistency stymied Carolina, changes are coming. Also, having a few veterans at key positions in addition to a dynamic young running back will aid in the process.

The news came one day after coach Ron Rivera had seemed to give his entire coaching staff an endorsement. We'll sit down with (interim general manager) Marty (Hurney) and go through all that. However, he and Dorsey were unable to get that type of consistent production out of Newton and the passing game.

"Starting with the current test build ... you will be able to report players directly from the replay feature of our game". Another big new feature of the update is the replay report tool, which allows you to tag cheaters from the replay screen.


Rivera said he informed Newton about the decision to fire Shula after it was made, but wouldn't comment on the quarterback's reaction to the news calling it "personal". He completed just 59.1 percent of his passes for 3,301 yards with 22 touchdowns and 16 interceptions.

Dorsey, who joined the organization as a scout and spent two seasons in that role before becoming quarterbacks coach, spent the past five seasons in that role.
