Probably no coach on the Carolina Panthers’ staff has endured as much criticism as offensive coordinator Mike Shula over the past few years.

On Tuesday, Shula and quarterbacks coach Ken Dorsey were fired. Shula had been in Carolina for seven seasons. He was quarterbacks coach for two and offensive coordinator since 2013. Dorsey was quarterbacks coach for the past five seasons.

In 2017, the Panthers were 19th in total offense (323.7 yards per game) and 28th in passing (192.3). They were No. 12 in points per game (22.7).

Social media reaction was quick. Here’s a sampling.
