Carolina Panthers coaches: Staff rounded out with two more additions

Kim Klement-US PRESSWIRE

The team has brought two more coaches aboard Ron Rivera's staff.

This morning the Carolina Panthers announced the additions of Bruce DeHaven, and Lance Taylor to Ron Rivera's coaching staff. They will fill the roles of assistant special teams coach, and offensive quality control coach respectively.

DeHaven is a 25-year veteran coach, with experience on the Buffalo Bills, San Francisco 49ers, Dallas Cowboys, and Seattle Seahawks. His tie to general manager Dave Gettleman comes in the form of his first stint in Buffalo in the late 1980's. In Carolina he'll assist Richard Rodgers, and with a wealth of experience as a special teams coordinator -- it's safe to say he'll be an interim possibility, if needed.

Lance Taylor is a slightly more curious hiring, as he has no ties to either Gettleman or Rivera. He does, however, have a link to offensive coordinator Mike Shula, as he served played for Alabama as a senior in 2003. Taylor has links to the region also, after being the wide receivers coach for Appalachian State in 2009. His role will be as an assistant to Rickey Proehl, as well as helping as a quality control coach. He has three years of NFL experience with the New York Jets.
