There are great coordinators who do not make great head coaches. Dom Capers is one. Green Bay's defensive coordinator is never without work, except immediately after failed stints as a head coach.
Norv Turner is another. Turner excelled as offensive coordinator with Dallas, San Diego, Miami and San Francisco. As a head coach with Washington, Oakland and San Diego he did not excel.
Somebody will soon make him an offensive coordinator, perhaps Rob Chudzinski, the former Panther offensive coordinator who on Thursday was named head coach in Cleveland.
But if Carolina head coach Ron Rivera has the pull, and the money to offer, he ought to go after Turner the way a football coach would a prized recruit.
Nobody, at least nobody who is available, is better.
