The Panthers were eliminated from the playoffs this season by the New Orleans Saints in the wild card round last weekend.

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.

Offensive coordinator Mike Shula and quarterbacks coach Ken Dorsey were fired by the Carolina Panthers on Tuesday. Despite the record, the Panthers ranked 19th in the league in total offense (323.7 yards per game) and 12th in scoring (22.7 points per game). 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.

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

The news came one day after coach Ron Rivera had seemed to give his entire coaching staff an endorsement.

He started to have second thoughts and chose to meet with interim general manager Marty Hurney about the decision.

However, its passing game has sputtered.

Shula helped to nurture quarterback Cam Newton and was behind his Most Valuable Player award season in 2015.

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

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