Mere days after their season came to a conclusion, the Panthers announced that they have fired offensive coordinator Mike Shula and quarterbacks coach Ken Dorsey.

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.

"I don't think so", Rivera said during a press conference on Monday when asked if he planned any coaching changes.

A veteran of 30 years of coaching, including 26 as an National Football League assistant and four as head coach at the University of Alabama from 2003-06, Shula joined the Panthers after four seasons as quarterbacks coach for Jacksonville from 2007-10. The only other time Newton threw as many interceptions was his rookie season when he threw 17.

It didn't help that the Panthers suffered several injuries at wide receiver and tight end this season and traded away No. 1 receiver Kelvin Benjamin.

Panthers quarterback Cam Newton, the 2015 NFL MVP and the first pick of the 2011 draft, had 22 touchdown passes and 16 interceptions this season. He started as a pro scout for twoyears before being named the team's quarterbacks coach in 2013.
