Mike Garafolo of the Newark Star-Ledger passes along “buzz” that former Bears offensive coordinator Ron Turner is interested in getting his “foot in the door” for the Giants’ vacant quarterbacks coach position.
Garafalo says Turner has contacted the Giants, but “likely has other options cooking as well.”
Garafolo also notes that no hire is imminent because Giants head coach Tom Coughlin is currently on vacation.
Turner was fired by the Bears on January 5 and formally replaced on Monday by Mike Martz. In 17 years of coaching, Norv’s younger brother has never coached strictly quarterbacks.
Giants quarterback Eli Manning lost his position coach when Chris Palmer quit to become the next head coach of the UFL’s New York Sentinels.
