SPARTANBURG Patric Hornqvist Jersey , S.C. (AP) Norv Turner easily could have opted to keep traveling the world with his wife, writing country music songs and playing with his grandchildren.

At 66, who would have blamed him?

Instead, Turner decided to return for a 33rd season of NFL coaching as offensive coordinator of the Carolina Panthers.

Turner, who won two Super Bowls as a coordinator with the Dallas Cowboys in the early 1990s, wasn’t necessarily looking to return to coaching after sitting out last season. But when approached about the Panthers’ job opening, Turner couldn’t resist the chance to reunite with head coach Ron Rivera – Turner’s assistant for four seasons when he was head coach of the San Diego Chargers.

He’s also joining his son, Panthers quarterbacks coach Scott Turner, and has the opportunity to coach a ”talented group” of players that includes 2015 league MVP quarterback Cam Newton.

”It’s a unique situation,” Turner said.

Turner joins a team that has his fingerprints all over it.

When Rivera was hired by the Panthers in 2011 – also Newton’s rookie season – he brought in Turner understudy Rob Chudzinski as his offensive coordinator. And when Mike Shula took over when Chudzinski left to coach the Cleveland Browns, many of Turner’s play calls remained. So it’s not like Turner is starting anew.

But he does have some new ideas.

”We are trying to build a complete offense and that will include things they have done here and it will include things they haven’t done here,” said Turner without elaborating on specifics.

Newton said the onus has been on Turner ”to take what we have done good and expand on it, rather than just ripping the sheets of paper up and having a this-is-my-way-or-the-highway mentality.”

So far the two say they’ve bonded well.

Turner was familiar with Newton because Scott worked with him during his first two seasons with the Panthers in his first stint as quarterbacks coach.

Turner said he likes the way Newton sees the entire field, but that his goal is to improve the quarterback’s decision-making skills.

”We want to make sure we get all of our eligible receivers involved,” Turner said.

Turner also wants to see Newton’s career 58.1 completion percentage increase significantly Dave Robinson Jersey , something Newton has already said he’s eager to work on.

”That has to be my mentality,” Newton said . ”We have a lot of guys who can take two yards and turn it into 20 yards, or more. But it starts with me and I have to trust those guys and get the ball to them.”

The Panthers talked last season about limiting the wear and tear on Newton’s body after undergoing rotator cuff surgery in March 2017 by cutting down on his running.

Newton is 29 and entering his eighth NFL season.

But Turner put no restrictions on Newton, Carolina’s leading rusher last season and the NFL’s all-time leader in touchdowns rushing by a quarterback, when he spoke after practice Thursday.

”Every game is different and all of sudden you are in a game where they are pressuring and he puts the ball down and runs three or four times, and then you have three or four runs called. … so there are games where he is going to carry the ball,” Turner said. ”And there are games where he is not going to carry the ball. A lot depends on how people defend us. A lot depends on how well we are playing, too.”

Turner did reiterate Rivera’s point that Christian McCaffrey will be a focal point of the offense, saying that 20-25 touches per game is not out of the question for the second-year running back.

The man who co-wrote a country music song called “Things I’ve Never Done,” with Stephen Ray, the son of former San Francisco 49ers head coach Steve Mariucci, is clearly enjoying the idea of doing what he’s done for more than three decades.

It is, after all, a unique situation for him.

”I am very comfortable with coach Rivera and the things he likes to do,” Turner said. ”We were together for four years Otis Sistrunk Jersey , so nothing is a shock to me.”



Brian Daboll has far too much on his plate to have time to reflect on how the Buffalo Bills new offensive coordinator’s career has brought him home.

There’s a new series of plays to install, players to evaluate and, most important, a new young hope at quarterback in first-round draft pick Josh Allen to groom.

So forget asking Daboll what it’s like to be working with the team he grew up in suburban Buffalo rooting for, or being on a staff headed by Sean McDermott, the former safety whom Daboll coached at William and Mary in 1997.

”Just day by day,” he said in addressing reporters at the Bills facility for the first time since being hired in January.

”You’re really grinding on that particular day and trying to get focused, whether it’s later on with the players or the next day, so you just kind of stay in the flow.”

And on Thursday, Daboll’s past was nowhere near the forefront of his attention.

”No. I’ve got my two-minute in my mind right now,” he said, referring to having his offense run the two-minute drill in practice for the first time this spring.

The 43-year-old is entering his 18th NFL season and 22nd overall, including college.

It’s a career in which Daboll has won five Super Bowl titles as an assistant during two separate stints with the New England Patriots. And he’s coming off a season in which he oversaw a run-heavy Crimson Tide offense that helped Alabama win the national title.

The championship experience was re-affirming for Daboll in proving he can adapt the offense to a team’s strengths while also gaining a better appreciation of dealing with younger players.

”The college game is a little different than the National Football League so I learned a lot there,” he said. ”You can’t put as much on them.”

It’s a lesson that will certainly carry over to Buffalo, where Daboll takes over an offense essentially rebuilding from scratch Marcus Cannon Jersey , with the exception of veteran star running back LeSean McCoy.

Buffalo’s undergoing yet another switch at quarterback after third-year starter Tyrod Taylor was traded to Cleveland in March.

There’s a three-way competition for the starting job led by Allen, the raw strong-armed rookie out of Wyoming who was selected with the seventh pick in the draft. It’s rounded out by AJ McCarron, who spent his first four NFL seasons as Andy Dalton’s backup in Cincinnati, and second-year player Nathan Peterman.

The offensive line is in transition after losing three starters. And the receiver position lacks established depth behind Kelvin Benjamin.

Benjamin said Daboll is putting the onus on the offensive veterans such as himself, McCoy and tight end Charles Clay to lead by example.

”He holds you accountable,” Benjamin said. ”I think they’re giving the young guys a little bit more leeway. But us three, I think we really have to focus on it a little bit more and just knowing our position and even knowing other people’s positions.”

Daboll said it’s premature to project who will fill out the starting jobs, and that particularly includes quarterback.

”All we’re trying to take is one step at a time,” he said. ”It’s so early in the process right now. I think that’ll sort itself out as time goes on.”

McCarron and Peterman are splitting time with the starters, while Allen, for now, is working with the third stringers.

Allen’s inconsistencies were apparent during the two-minute drill.

He telegraphed his third pass, which was intercepted by cornerback Breon Borders. During his second chance, Allen completed five of seven attempts, including one dropped pass http://www.washingtonredskinsteamonline.com/ryan-anderson-jersey , and capped the drive by hitting Cam Phillips in the right corner of the end zone.

Daboll is Buffalo’s fifth coordinator in five years. He replaced Rick Dennison who was fired after one season in which the Bills finished 29th in yards – mostly because of a popgun passing attack – and 22nd in points.

Daboll was actually born in Welland, Ontario, just across the river from Buffalo. But he quickly relocated to West Seneca, New York, where he was brought up by his maternal grandparents and developed a passion for football and the Bills.

”I know it’s different being at home, being raised here. There’s a lot of people, and I’m one of them, that love this team,” Daboll said. ”I’m just excited to be here.”

NOTES: TE Logan Thomas will miss the final two weeks of spring practices after having surgery to repair a minor knee injury. … The Bills have four voluntary practices next week, and then hold a three-day mandatory minicamp from June 12-14.
