Turner has spent the last three years with Minnesota as the quarterbacks coach and two seasons prior with Cleveland as the offensive quality control coordinator. His latest work with the Vikings is highly thought of for his success with Teddy Bridgewater.
#Michigan's new analyst Scott Turner is very well thought of in football circles. Did a good job bringing Teddy Bridgewater along in Minn.— Bruce Feldman (@BruceFeldmanCFB) February 20, 2017
Before that, he had experience with the Carolina Panthers and at the college level with Pittsburgh staff from 2008-2010.
Adding Turner means the staff has three with quarterback coaching experience in the NFL, including Jim Harbaugh and Pep Hamilton.
The analyst role means that Turner can assist in gameplanning and other tasks to prepare the team, be he is not allowed to recruit like the assistants on Harbaugh’s staff can. These positions have traditionally worked as a spring board for a bigger role, whether it be with the Wolverines or elsewhere.
