Turner's son, Scott, who worked with the quarterbacks at the University of MI this past season, will be the new position coach for Cam Newton, multiple outlets reported. The Panthers are also hiring Turner's son, Scott, as QBs coach.

Although Turner led a top-five offense in five of his six years with the Chargers, he hasn't had as much success lately as a coordinator. Shula was sacked on Tuesday, along with quarterbacks coach Ken Dorsey.

The Carolina Panthers are reportedly close to naming Norv Turner their new offensive coordinator.

Rivera made the move because he felt a change was needed to further the development of Newton, who had 30 interceptions to only 41 touchdown passes the past two seasons. He was sacked after winning just nine games in two seasons, but jumped across the Bay in 2006 to be the 49ers' offensive coordinator.

Still, he has worked with a wide range of quarterbacks throughout his career, including Troy Aikman, Philip Rivers, Alex Smith, Sam Bradford, Brad Johnson, Teddy Bridgewater and Doug Flutie among many others. Newton, 28, is coming off his worst two seasons in terms of passer rating.

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.

Scott was the quality control coach at Carolina during Rivera's first two years (2011-12).

Turner has a wealth of coaching experience, serving as offensive coordinator for the Dallas Cowboys (1991-1993), then-San Diego Chargers (2001), Miami Dolphins (2002-2003), Oakland Raiders (2004-2005), San Francisco 49ers (2006), Cleveland Browns (2013), and Vikings (2014-2016).

Turner interviewed with the team last week and will take over for Mike Shula, who was sacked on Tuesday.
