Colts hire former Bears-OC Ron Turner

New, comments

Ron Turner's agent says that Turner is joining the Colts staff, but is uncertain of his role at the moment. The move is fueling speculation that Colts OC Tom Moore may be retiring, with Clyde Christensen taking his place and Turner filling Christensen's role.

Tom Moore had joked after his return from a near retirement of pension issues that he would coach until he was kicked out, so a retirement would be a surprise.

Turner had two stints as the Bears OC, with a stay as the head coach of Illinois between them. He was fired last season by the Bears who brought in Mike Martz to replace him.
