The Carolina Panthers changed the offensive coaching staff this season, handing the reins to the Turner family, with the focus on raising the play of Cam Newton.

Coach Ron Rivera said upon hiring offensive coordinator Norv Turner that he wanted to see Newton get to "another level." That level, however, won't necessarily include making Cam a statuesque pocket passer.

Panthers new QB coach Scott Turner -- who was a quality control coach in Carolina during Newton's rookie season -- told Max Henson of the team's official website that Cam's unique talent won't go to waste.

"What he has done has really refined his game, really become a pro, but he's going to play his way," Turner said. "He's going to run -- that's what makes him the dynamic player he is -- but also making the throws in the pocket, going through his reads. All of those things come from experience, and he's played seven seasons now."
