Turner fills the opening created by Ron Crook, who last week left to become offensive line coach at West Virginia. Crook served as the The Cardinal’s tight ends and offensive tackles coach, but Mike Bloomgren will work with the tackles in the new staff setup.

On Feb. 8, it was announced that Turner would join the staff at Florida International as tight ends and tackles coach. His father, Ron Turner, is the Panthers’ head coach.
In 2009, Turner was quarterbacks coach on Trent Miles’ staff at Indiana State. He began his career at at Central High in Champaign, Ill. in 2008.
Stanford began spring practice today, and will split its 15 spring practices among two sessions of two weeks each. The second session begins April 1.
The Cardinal & White Spring Game is April 13.
