CHARLOTTE https://www.carolinapanthersfanshop.com/Torrey-Smith-Jersey , The Carolina Panthers hired Norv Turner on Friday as their new offensive coordinator to replace Mike Shula, who was fired earlier in the week after seven seasons with the team. Turner, 65 inherits an offense that includes a unique talent in quarterback Cam Newton, versatile running back Christian McCaffrey, reliable tight end Greg Olsen and a solid offensive line. However, while the Panthers finished 12th in the league scoring in 2017, they were just 28th in passing. He’s the latest member of the Turner family to join the Panthers. His brother, Ron Turner, works as the team’s offensive consultant and nephew Cameron is the assistant quarterbacks coach. Turner is expected to bring son Scott Turner on as quarterbacks coach. Ron Rivera worked as defensive coordinator for Turner when he was the head coach of the San Diego Chargers before Rivera joined the Panthers as head coach in 2011. They have remained close friends. ”Norv has coached Hall of Famers, he’s set a lot of people on the career paths that they’ve had,” Rivera said in a news release Friday. ”I’m excited about his knowledge and his offensive prowess. It’s going to be invaluable to us have him evaluate our personnel and help take our quarterback to another level.” Turner comes to Carolina with a wealth of experience, having coached 32 seasons in the NFL, including 15 seasons as a head coach and 11 as an offensive coordinator. As offensive coordinator for the Dallas Cowboys (1991-93), he helped the Cowboys win two Super Bowls. He last worked with the Minnesota Vikings in 2016, but that ended abruptly with Turner resigning after seven games with the offense ranked 31st in the league. Turner had been hired in 2014 by first-time head coach Mike Zimmer in Minnesota. Turner and his son Scott Dontari Poe Color Rush Jersey , the quarterbacks coach for the Vikings at the time, played a key part in the decision to draft Teddy Bridgewater with the last pick in the first round. Bridgewater took over as the starter three games into his rookie year and showed improvement in his second season, though the Vikings were a defense-driven, run-first team that didn’t ask Bridgewater to take over games. But the Vikings ranked just 27th and 29th in the NFL in total yards in Turner’s first two years and 20th and 16th in scoring, with a rushing title for Adrian Peterson in 2015 the most notable accomplishment. Zimmer wasn’t satisfied, bringing in two new offensive assistants who’d been NFL head coaches before: Pat Shurmur to coach the tight ends and Tony Sparano to coach the offensive line. The Vikings went 11-5 in 2015 to win the NFC North and started 5-0 in 2016 until an injury-ravaged, vulnerable offensive line contributed to the collapse. Bridgewater’s progress had been painfully thwarted right before that regular season started by a dislocated knee and multiple ligament tears, but emergency acquisition Sam Bradford was playing well in his place. But after the offense struggled in two straight losses on the road following the five-game winning streak, Turner stunned Zimmer by resigning his post. Still, he has the respect of his former players. ”He has a history of developing quarterbacks. His track record speaks volumes,” Bridgewater said. Bridgewater said Turner will be good for Newton, who is coming off his two worst seasons in terms of quarterback. ”Carolina actually ran a similar system to what Norv runs. So, it won’t be too much transitioning,” Bridgewater said. ”They still throw those deep balls down the field, deep over routes Jarius Wright Jersey , deep daggers.” Vikings wide receiver Jarius Wright said he enjoyed playing for Turner and also think he will be good coach for Newton. ”Cam does a lot of good things that Norv likes to get done,” Wright said. ”Also, I don’t know if you remember a couple years ago how we used Jerick McKinnon and they have Christian McCaffrey. A lot of ways they can get a chance to spread the ball out.” Bridgewater will be interested to see what happens in Carolina. ”He loves pushing the ball down the field, heavy play action,” Bridgewater said. Let’s ”see if he made some changes with this year off or if he’s just been playing golf and sitting on the lake.” — AP Sports Writer Dave Campbell in Minneapolis contributed to this report. — Running back Christian McCaffrey had another strong day for the Panthers, with 157 yards from scrimmage on 22 touches. One specific touch resulted in McCaffrey not being touched when he went up and over Buccaneers defensive back Carlton Davis.So what’s the thought process when exposing a sensitive area of the body to potential contact with a helmet by leaping over a defender?“It’s very instinctive,” McCaffrey told PFT by phone after Sunday’s 42-28 win over the Buccaneers.But sometimes instincts can betray a guy. Asked if he’s ever hurdled and failed, McCaffrey recalled (how could he forget?) a 2016 game while he was still at Stanford. Facing Oregon State, McCaffrey tried to hurdle a defender, and McCaffrey got clipped in the McNuggets. But he doesn’t seem to mind.“As long as I fall forward, it’s OK,” McCaffrey said.McCaffrey’s workload has increased this season, and he’s OK with that, too.“I don’t think there’s a workload that’s too heavy for me,” McCaffrey said https://www.carolinapanthersfanshop.com/Da_Norris-Searcy-Jersey , adding that he’d take as many rushing attempts and pass receptions as possible.聽The extra work isn’t making it harder to get out of bed on Mondays. He said that he can have 30 touches and feel great the next day, and that he can have only 10 touches but if one tackle or hit gets him a certain way, he’ll feel if the next day.He’s not getting hit much this year, because (as he explained it) the coaching staff has come up with different ways to put guys in space. With the offensive line playing well, McCaffrey feeling more comfortable and poised in year two, and quarterback Cam Newton continuing to provide leadership and stability to the offense, the Panthers keep winning.And they’re paying no attention to the fact that they’re still operating under radar. The focus, as McCaffrey explained it, is simply on trying to get better each and every week.So far, it has worked, especially over the past few weeks. And McCaffrey has no complaints about playing on Thursday night against the Steelers, citing the momentum that the team has developed since that 21-point explosion in the fourth quarter against the Eagles two weeks ago.
