MI offensive analyst Scott Turner reportedly joining Carolina Panthers as QBs coach

Share

As Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reported Tuesday, Turner was head coach Ron Rivera's initial target when he chose to fire previous coordinator Mike Shula.

His son Scott is expected to join him in Charlotte as quarterbacks coach, according to the report. He takes over from Mike Shula, who was sacked on Tuesday. And now, they're nearing a deal to make Norv Turner their next offseason coordinator, per ESPN's David Newton.

As Newton also wrote, Norv's brother Ron is now an offensive consultant with the Panthers and his nephew Cameron is the assistant QB coach.

But the Cavs have often looked old, slow and disinterested this season - which is precisely how they looked Thursday night. Toronto had a season-high 18 threes on Thursday after shooting just 7-21 from beyond the arc in the loss to Miami.

ESPN's David Newton writes the Panthers have hired former National Football League head coach Norv Turner to serve as offensive coordinator, and along with him his son, Scott.

"I came to the conclusion going forward the thing we needed to do was bring in a different perspective, different ideas in terms of going forward to what I believe is our ultimate goal, and that is winning a Super Bowl", Rivera said after firing Shula and Dorsey.

"I think Cam's got room for improvement. There's room for growth, and he showed some growth this year and made some big steps".

Scott Turner is reportedly headed back to the NFL.

Just this week, the NCAA allowed Division I football programs to add a 10th on-field assistant coach to their staff. MI now has nine assistant coaches on staff, pending Greg Frey's reported departure for Florida State, and just hired quarterback guru Dan Enos as wide receivers coach. Head coach Ron Rivera has worked with Turner before, serving first as his linebackers coach and later as defensive coordinator in San Diego from 2007-2010.

Carolina are the seventh team to hire Turner as head of their offense, the last being the Minnesota Vikings from 2014-16. Newton has thrown 30 interceptions and 41 touchdowns in the past two years.
