Panthers to hire Dorsey as QBs coach

Panthers to hire Dorsey as QBs coach 


Panthers coach Ron Rivera is expected to hire Ken Dorsey, one of the team's pro scouts, as his quarterbacks coach, a source with knowledge of the situation said Tuesday.

Dorsey, 31, joined the scouting department two years ago after working with former Panthers quarterback Chris Weinke at IMG Academy, where they trained Cam Newton during the lockout before Newton's rookie season.

Re: Panthers to hire Dorsey as QBs coach 


I am still kind of confused on how a scout (who hasnt done a great job IMO) has the ability to be a qb coach with no prior experience in that job for a very young qb. I rather have someone who has done it before.

What makes you say he hasn't done a great job.

He was one of the ones that worked with Cam before the draft at Camp Weinke in Florida.

Dorsey was actually a QB in the NFL ...1x NCAA champion 2x Heisman finalist...

trained Cam Newton, Christiain Ponder and others are IMG with Chris Weinke. I'm sure he has some coaching ability as they say... "Those that can't play...coach..."

I think it's a great move, personally.  More continuity for Cam.

Yeh, I have to think they intend to give Newton as much continuity as they can to see if Cam can really be a "franchise level" player...put some meat in front of him to assure he's not going to be rushed as he was last season, and we might have the formula for winning more than 3-4 in a row.

I didn't think it was official yet. From what I know, so far he only interviewed.

Thought it was done? Sure seems that way

" The Panthers are bringing back former running backs coach Jim Skipper, an assistant for all of John Fox’s nine seasons. Skipper accepted the job after Panthers coach Ron Rivera cited continuity in elevating Shula, who has worked closely with quarterback Cam Newton for two seasons and has an intimate knowledge of an offense that ranked seventh and 12th in the NFL during Chudzinski’s two seasons"

I went to the Panthers home page (Panthers.com) and Skip isn't listed as a coach. I also saw the article that you just posted, seems like they would have listed him on the website, since it's been a few days

I missed that article. Thanks for sharing! See, my mistake. They're not always updated right away on the site, CANA. You were right, skip is back! Having some Skippy peanut butter to celebrate!
