Norv’s Son Hired as Offensive Quality Control in Carolina


The Carolina Panthers hired hired Coach Norv Turner’s son, Scott Turner, as the offensive quality control coach.

I had to look up what an offensive quality control coach really was and here is what I found out:

college coaching guys often start their careers as graduate assistants. In the NFL, the entry-level position on coaching staffs is usually as one of the quality control assistants.

At times they are called “offensive assistant” or “defensive assistant,” but the “quality control” portion of the job is at the root of things.

He charts down-and-distance situations, field position, substitutions, etc., and then gives that report to the team’s defensive staff when they begin their game planning each week during the regular season.

The offensive quality control assistant would do the same in regard to opposing defenses and then give the reports to the offensive staff.

Anyway, how in the world did the Carolina Panthers end up with the coaching situation that we have been screaming for here in San Diego? Ron Rivera is running the show and “Turner” on offense?
