NFL Carolina Panthers

Ken Dorsey Named Carolina Panthers’ Quarterbacks Coach

Dorsey, Ken 1

Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

Ken Dorsey is a former NFLCFL, and UFL quarterback whom is best known to people as the quarterback who lead the University of Miami Hurricanes to one of the best seasons in college football history in 2001. In 2011, Dorsey became  a pro scout for the Carolina Panthers and also in the off-season he worked as a trainer for IMG Sports Academy in Florida which coincidentally worked with current Panthers and 2011 offensive rookie of the year Cam Newton and 2012 defensive rookie of the year Luke Kuechly as well.

While Dorsey never had the strongest of arms thus he never translated well into the NFL, however he understands mechanics extremely well, and is very intelligent which often translates well into being a very good if not great coach regardless of level of play or coaching. This reuniting of Newton and Dorsey could yield large benefits as the Panthers go into the 2013 campaign. One of the amazing things about Dorsey too is that he is only 31 years old and that he will be responsible for one of the best young quarterbacks in the league.

In addition, Ken will be inducted into the University of Miami Sports Hall of Fame at its 45th Annual Induction Banquet on Thursday, April 11th , 2013 at Jungle Island in Miami. Notable alumni that are recent Super Bowl winners Ray Lewis and Ed Reed plus recent NFL Hall of Fame memberWarren Sapp.
