Panthers name Turner as offensive coordinator

Norv Turner Report: Panthers Finalizing Deal to Make Norv Turner Next Offensive Coordinator

He spent the 2014-16 seasons as the quarterbacks coach at Minnesota, where his dad was the offensive coordinator, before joining MI this year.

A return to San Diego arrived in 2007 when Turner was named head coach of the Chargers.

ESPN's David Newton reports the Panthers are nearing a deal to hire Norv Turner as their offensive coordinator.

He's the latest member of the Turner family to join the Panthers.

Turner, 65, replaces Mike Shula, who was sacked earlier this week after seven seasons with Carolina, including five as offensive co-ordinator.

Turner's son, Scott, an analyst who worked with quarterbacks at MI, also is coming to Carolina as the next position coach for Cam Newton, according to another source.

Head coach Ron Rivera hopes the moves will help star quarterback Cam Newton as he continues to develop. He'll take over for Mike Shula, whom the Panthers fired following their wild-card-round loss to the Saints.

Washington hired him in 1994, where he lasted as head coach until 2000 in spite of just one playoff appearance during his tenure. Turner was sacked following the 2012 season after the Chargers failed to make the playoffs for a third straight year. Newton, 28, is coming off his worst two seasons in terms of passer rating.

The Panthers' offense went from being ranked 11th in yards and No. 1 in points in 2015 to 19th and 15th in 2016, and 19th and 12th this season.

"Norv has coached Hall of Famers, he's set a lot of people on the career paths that they've had", said Panthers head coach Ron Rivera via statement.

The 65-year-old Turner has a wealth of coaching experience, serving as offensive coordinator for the Dallas Cowboys (1991-1993), then-San Diego Chargers (2001), Miami Dolphins (2002-2003), Oakland Raiders (2004-2005), San Francisco 49ers (2006), Cleveland Browns (2013), and Vikings (2014-2016).
