Turner Out??

Well it turns out I was wrong and the rumor-mongering this morning was on to something, as OL coach Jim Turner has apparently resigned (or plans to in the near future), according to the Globe. Jags, an O-line guru himself, will take over for the time being. Unclear on whether Turner is leaving on his own or was "asked" to resign by the head man, and it is equally unclear what the fallout of this development, if any, will be.

This could mean any one of a number of things. It could mean that Turner was butting heads with Jags and/or Logan. It could mean that Turner's hire, which was something of a "reach", wasn't working. It could be some sort of personal or family issue on Turner's end. Or it could be something entirely different altogether.

The short-term implications are two-fold. First, as mentioned earlier, Jags will be directly coaching the O-line until Turner's replacement is found. I actually think this will benefit the OL unit, as Jags has coached the position at a higher level than Turner has and is considered an offensive line innovator even at the NFL level; but as head coach Jags is forced to wear many hats both on and off the sideline, and we have to hope that this won't force him to divert too much attention away from his other responsibilities.

Second, the impact it will have on recruiting has yet to be seen. Although it is unclear exactly which recruits Turner has been working on, based on what we believe have been the various coaches' areas of responsibility, Turner's area of responsibility is eastern Pennsylvania including Philadelphia, plus Northern Florida. (That said, RB Richard Watson from Tallahassee has specifically mentioned talking to Ben Sirmans; however, it is unclear whether this is because Sirmans is recruiting him or because he would be Watson's position coach at BC.) You also have to assume that he's been playing a part with any OL recruits.

Impossible to say just yet how the fallout from this will impact BC's season.
