Mike Tolbert says Norv Turner will make Cam Newton a better QB

According to David Newton over at ESPN, Turner is finalizing a deal to become the Carolina Panthers' new offensive coordinator.

Rivera and Turner have a history together, so it's not surprising that Ron ultimately made a decision to give Norv the job.

Turner, 65, was away from coaching this past season after spending the last four decades coaching in either college or the NFL. Scott Turner is an offensive analyst at the University of MI and previously worked for the Panthers as an offensive quality control coordinator from 2011-12.

Scott, who is 35-years-old, began his coaching career as a graduate assistant at Oregon State in 2005.

Turner, 65, replaces Mike Shula, who along with quarterbacks coach Ken Dorsey, was sacked Tuesday. That included a stint with San Diego, where Turner hired Rivera after the Bears chose not to renew Rivera's contract following their Super Bowl season of 2006.

Washington hired him in 1994, where he lasted as head coach until 2000 in spite of just one playoff appearance during his tenure.

The Vikings were 5-2 when Norv Turner resigned in 2016, and he'll have another chance to build on his National Football League legacy and do so with one of the best athletes the quarterback position's ever seen. Turner was sacked following the 2012 season after the Chargers failed to make the playoffs for a third straight year. Newton has thrown 30 interceptions over the past two years. Coach Ron Rivera also has an extensive history with Turner, having served as his defensive coordinator when Turner was head coach of the San Diego Chargers.

Panthers coach Ron Rivera said Monday he did not anticipate any coaching staff changes, but changed his mind after sleeping on it. Shula was Carolina's quarterbacks coach when Newton was selected with the top pick in the 2011 NFL Draft and was promoted to offensive coordinator in 2013.
