Not long after former Bears offensive coordinator Ron Turner was fired, he was hired by Stanford coach Jim Harbaugh to serve as quarterbacks coach.
And it didn’t last long.
Per Rivals.com (via J.T. of CFT), Turner will join the Colts as the team’s new receivers coach.
Clyde Christensen currently is the receivers coach in Indy, but he’s expected to become the offensive coordinator if/when Tom Moore re-retires.
If nothing else, the addition of Turner, who was widely criticized for his work with the Chicago offense, will provide another magnet for blame that might otherwise go to quarterback Peyton Manning when things don’t go well.
Of course, when things work, it’s all because of Peyton.
