  • New Orleans Saints defensive tackle Tyeler Davison sacks Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton during a NFC Wild Card game at the Mercedes Benz Superdome New Orleans Sunday Jan. 7 2018

The Carolina Panthers are not messing around after losing in the NFC Wildcard Playoffs to the division-rival New Orleans Saints this past weekend.

Shula had been with the Panthers for seven years, starting out as quarterbacks coach before being promoted in 2013, when Dorsey took up his previous role.

Be careful what you wish for - you might just get it. Panthers fans have been clamoring for offensive coordinator Mike Shula to be fired for years.

The announcement came one day after Carolina coach Ron Rivera said he didn't anticipate making any changes to the Panthers' coaching staff.

Under Shula's leadership, the Panthers finished 19th in total offense (323.7), fourth in rushing offense (131.4), 28th in passing (192.3) and 12th in points (22.7) in the 2017 season. He had spent 21 years as an National Football League assistant with stops in Jacksonville, Tampa Bay, Miami, and Chicago prior to getting the Panthers' offensive coordinator job.

BBC editor quits China post over pay discrimination
The BBC has come under fire recently for paying male employees more and has pledged to close the gender gap by 2020. Gracie, who speaks fluent Mandarin and has reported on China for three decades, has not left the BBC.

He started to have second thoughts and chose to meet with interim general manager Marty Hurney about the decision.

Head coach Ron Rivera recently signed a two-year contract extension with the Panthers and now faces rebuilding his offensive coaching team.

Rivera said he still expects the Panthers will use the read option with quarterback Cam Newton, who was the team's leading rusher last season with 754 yards.

Dorsey served as quarterbacks coach from 2013-17 following two seasons as a pro scout.
