Panthers release OC Mike Shula, QB coach Ken Dorsey

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

The strangest, oddest off-season in the 23-year history of the Carolina Panthers got more complicated Tuesday when the Panthers announced that offensive coordinator Mike Shula and quarterbacks coach Ken Dorsey had been fired. They were 12th in points scored. "I think the things that we've done are the right kinds of things", Rivera said. I'll evaluate the coaches, the scheme and we'll go from that. This comes one day after head coach Ron Rivera seemingly indictated that their jobs would be safe. The 52-year-old offensive mind spent one more season in the same capacity before he was promoted to his latest role as the team's offensive coordinator.

Shula - the son of former Miami Dolphins coach and National Football League all-time winningest coach Don Shula - had been with the Panthers since the 2011 season.

Rivera had said Monday that he wasn't planning to make any changes to his staff. He also wants to see the ball in Christian McCaffrey's hands in open space.

Dorsey, 36, was drafted in the seventh round by the 49ers in 2003 and started a combined eight games for San Francisco in the 2004 and 2005 seasons, going 2-8.

In an open letter , Ms Gracie said the issue was about "men earning more in the same jobs or jobs of equal value". Gracie herself was offered a grievance hearing and pay rise, from £135000 to £18000 but she declined.

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. He completed just 59.1 percent of his passes for 3,301 yards with 22 touchdowns and 16 interceptions.

Dorsey was hired as the Panthers pro scout in 2011 before being moved to quarterbacks coach in 2013.

Shula, the son of Miami Dolphins legend Don Shula, has coached 30 years, 26 of those in the NFL.
