Turner was fired as the Chargers head coach, after a 7-9 season, the team’s third straight season outside of the playoffs. Turner has a 114-122-1 overall record as a head coach.
On five seperate occasions, the lead running back in Turner’s offense was the regular season rushing champ. Emmit Smith did it three times, Ladanian Tomlinson once and Frank Gore once.
This could be good news for Trent Richardson, as he tries to build on his productive rookie campaign.
The Browns also have hired receivers coach Scott Turner, offensive line coach Mike Sullivan, and strength and conditioning coach Brad Roll.
