The Carolina Panthers have promoted from within to fill yet another position on their coaching staff.

According to Joseph Person of the Charlotte Observer, the Panthers have promoted pro scout Ken Dorsey to the role of quarterbacks coach. Dorsey takes the role offensive coordinator Mike Shula previously held. Shula was promoted to offensive coordinator following the departure of Rob Chudzinski to the Cleveland Browns.

Dorsey has served in the Panthers scouting department for the last two seasons. Dorsey played six seasons in the NFL with the San Francisco 49ers and Cleveland Browns and a year in the CFL with the Toronto Argonauts before retiring and moving to a scouting role.
