CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — The Carolina Panthers are parting ways with former interim head coach and special teams coordinator Chris Tabor as well as offensive line coach James Campen, a person familiar with moves told The Associated Press.

The person spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity Friday night because the team had not announced the moves that came a day after the Panthers agreed to hire Dave Canales as their new head coach.

Tabor took over as the Panthers' head coach on a interim basis after Frank Reich was fired last season following a 1-10 start. Tabor went 1-5 over the final six games and interviewed for the full-time job.

Campen's departure does not come as a surprise after Bryce Young was sacked 62 times last season, second most of any quarterback in the league.
