Ron Turner hired as Tampa Bay Buccaneers' quarterbacks coach per report

According to Alex Marvez of Fox Sports the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have hired Ron Turner as their new quarterbacks coach. Earlier reports indicated that Ben McDaniels had been hired as an offensive assistant, and it was presumed the he would act as a quarterbacks coach. Apparently that is not the case, and he will simply be an offensive assistant.

Ron Turner was the Indianapolis Colts' quarterback coach during the past season, and is perhaps best known as the Chicago Bears' offensive coordinator from 2005 through 2009. In addition, he was the Illinois Illini head coach from 1997 through 2004, and served as the Bears' offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach from 1993 through 1996.

With Ron Turner's hire, the Bucs have most likely completed their coaching staff. Interestingly, the team has mostly hired experienced coaches, as opposed to hiring up-and-coming coaches in previous seasons. Numerous coaches on the staff have experience as a head coach, and most position coaches have previous experience as a coordinator. Whether this leads to better coaching or a confused approach caused by having too many cooks in the kitchen remains to be seen, but at least the fans can't legitimately complain about a lack of experience among coaches.
