CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Panthers coach Ron Rivera wanted a little something more from his offense, which is why he turned to his old boss Norv Turner as the team's new coordinator this season.
Rivera, who once coached under Turner in San Diego, said he got exactly what he was hoping for Sunday.
NEW YORK (AP) — The New York Jets found someone to lead their offense. Next up: the search for a quarterback.
New Orleans Saints wide receivers coach John Morton was hired by the Jets on Tuesday to be their offensive coordinator.
Morton replaces Chan Gailey, who retired after the season following two years on coach Todd Bowles' staff.
The hiring came four weeks after the Jets finished a 5-11 season during which the offense struggled with injuries and ineffectiveness.
