CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - The Panthers announced they've filled their two remaining vacancies on coach Ron Rivera's staff by hiring Bruce DeHaven as their assistant special teams coach and Lance Taylor as the new assistant wide receivers/quality control coach.
DeHaven joins the Panthers after spending the previous three seasons with the Buffalo Bills. In 2012, DeHaven's special teams unit ranked first in the NFL in punt return average and fourth in kickoff return average.
He'll work under special teams coordinator Richard Rodgers.
Taylor comes to the Panthers after three seasons with the New York Jets.
Last season Taylor served as the Jets' assistant tight ends coach/quality control coach after working as offensive quality control coach in 2011. Prior to joining the Jets, Taylor was wide receivers coach at Appalachian State in 2009.
