    There has been another coaching shake-up with the Carolina Panthers.

     

    The Panthers have parted ways with special teams coordinator Thomas McGaughey Womens Travis Hamonic Jersey , said a person familiar with the situation. The team has promoted Chase Blackburn to take McGaughey’s place after his contract was not renewed.

    The person spoke to The Associated Press on Friday on condition of anonymity because the team has not announced the news.

    The Charlotte Observer was first to report the news.

    McGaughey is the second coordinator to leave since the end of the season.

    Carolina abruptly fired offensive coordinator Mike Shula two days after the season and replaced him with Norv Turner despite a season in which they finished 11-5 and made the playoffs for the fourth time in five seasons.

    Quarterbacks coach Ken Dorsey was also fired.

    Blackburn has served as the team’s assistant special teams coordinator under McGaughey for the past two seasons. The 34-year-old Blackburn played nine seasons in the NFL, finishing his career with the Panthers in 2014.

    McGaughey could draw interest from the New York Giants Michael Hutchinson Jersey , where former Panthers general manager Dave Gettleman is now in charge.

    The Cleveland Browns are also looking for a special teams coordinator.

    The Panthers are coming off a successful season on special teams. They returned a punt and a kickoff for a touchdown this season, kicker Graham Gano is headed to the Pro Bowl as an alternate after missing just one field goal during the regular season and punter Michael Palardy ranked fifth in the league with a net average of 42.4 yards.

    Carolina’s kickoff coverage unit only had to cover 12 kickoffs all season because Gano led the league in touchbacks.

    The Tennessee Titans have agreed to a four-year contract with free agent running back Dion Lewis.

    A person familiar with the deal says the sides agreed to the contract on Tuesday. The person spoke on the condition of anonymity because signings can't become official until the start of the new league year on Wednesday. ESPN's Adam Schefter first reported the pact.

    The person said the deal for the former Patriots starter carries a maximum value of $23.4 million.

    Lewis had his first season with New England in 2015 season cut short by knee surgery after seven games.

    He played just seven games during his return in 2016 Authentic Tyler Eifert Jersey , but he had a career season in 2017, leading New England with 896 rushing yards and six rushing touchdowns. He also had three receiving scores and was the Patriots' best kickoff returner Victor Mete Jersey , posting a 103-yard return for a touchdown against Denver.

    In Tennessee, he joins Derrick Henry in the backfield. He'll also be reunited with former teammate Logan Ryan as well as Malcolm Butler Blake Comeau Jersey , who also agreed to a deal with the Titans on Tuesday.
