Panthers Bring Aboard NFL Coaching Vet Ron Turner as Consultant to the Coaching Staff

The Panthers have added Ron Turner, a veteran of 12 NFL coaching seasons, as a consultant to the coaching staff, Max Henson of Panthers.com reports.

Turner, most recently the head coach at Florida International from 2013-16, last worked in the NFL as the quarterbacks coach for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2012.

“He’ll work closely with the offense as far as evaluating the things that we’re doing, evaluating our opponents,” head coach Ron Rivera said. “And then he’ll also do some stuff for (defensive coordinator) Steve Wilks, looking at what we’re doing and explaining how people might try to attack our defense.

“He’s got a wealth of knowledge as a guy who coached at the NFL and college level for a number of years.”

This is a reunion of sorts for Rivera, Wilks and Turner, who all worked together on the 2006 Chicago Bears team that went to Super Bowl XLI.

“They’re great guys; smart, good coaches, but most importantly good people,” said Turner, who was then the offensive coordinator for the Bears
