Former QB Ken Dorsey’s legacy at Miami (FL) was built on possessing a sharp acumen and being a consummate winner. As the Carolina Panthers’ new quarterbacks coach, he hopes to pass on those characteristics to Cam Newton after the 2011 No. 1 overall pick struggled in his second season.
On paper, Dorsey is the perfect man for the job. The triggerman of the Hurricanes’ dominant 2001 national championship team trained Newton during the 2011 offseason at the IMG Madden Football Academy and served as a Panthers pro scout for the past two seasons.
If Newton experiences anything near the success that Dorsey enjoyed at Miami, the Panthers will be overjoyed that they gave Dorsey this promotion. Ken Dorsey profile
