In the latest — and certainly not last — rotation of the Michigan football coaching carousel, Scott Turner has accepted a job as the quarterbacks coach for the Carolina Panthers, according to an ESPN report.
Turner, formerly the Wolverines’ senior offensive analyst, leaves Harbaugh’s staff less than a year after he was hired. Word of Turner’s hiring comes just hours after his father and long-time NFL coach, Norv, was named Carolina’s offensive coordinator.
Just four weeks ago — on the road against Ohio State — Michigan coughed up a 20-point first half lead, scored just 18 second half points and left Columbus winless and with an identity crisis to repair.
Throughout the season, the point guard position has been a source of limited production for the Michigan men’s basketball team.
In their previous game, freshman Eli Brooks and sophomore Zavier Simpson combined for just two points on three shot attempts facing a far-inferior Jacksonville team.
But on Tuesday night, Simpson played the best game of his college career, tallying 15 points and 7 assists to lead the Wolverines (2-1 Big Ten, 13-3 overall) to a 75-68 win over Iowa (0-3, 9-7) at Carver-Hawkeye Arena.
