Family reunion in Charlotte as Turner named new OC
CHARLOTTE, N.C. >> Carolina hired Norv Turner on Friday as its 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.
