Robert "Bobby" Turner (born May 6, 1949 in Midway, Alabama) is the Washington Redskins running backs coach. He held the same position in Denver from 1995-2009; he also worked for 20 years as a college assistant and has 34 combined years of coaching experience at the professional, collegiate and high school levels.

In his final collegiate coaching stop before moving to the NFL, Turner served as assistant head coach, offensive coordinator and running backs coach at Purdue University from 1991-94. Turner was the running backs coach at Ohio State University from 1989-90, a period when the Buckeyes went to two bowl games and had one of the best running games in the Big Ten Conference.

Before his stint at Ohio State, Turner coached the running backs at Fresno State University (1983-88) and at his alma mater, Indiana State University. He accepted a position coaching Indiana State's running backs and quarterbacks in 1975and also worked as the team's strength and conditioning coordinator that season. Turner was Indiana State's defensive backs coach as well as its strength and conditioning coordinator from 1976-77 before working as the team's running backs coach and special teams coordinator from 1978-81. In his final year at Indiana State in 1982, he coached defensive backs and served as special teams coordinator.

Turner began his coaching career at Haworth High School in Kokomo, Indiana, where he was an assistant coach with the football and basketball teams from 1972-74. Turner enjoyed a fine career as an all-conference defensive back at Indiana State, where he played both football and basketball. He tied the school's single-season record as a sophomore by recording nine of his 16 career interceptions, including two returned for touchdowns.

He earned his bachelor's degree in health and physical education from Indiana State in 1972 before receiving his master's degree in education/administration from the school in 1976. Turner was born in Midway, Alabama, and grew up in East Chicago, Indiana.

I would simply request that all BGO members, when referring to coach Bobby Turner, that Bobby, B., or R., ALWAYS be used before Turner.

To only see, Coach Turner, used in reference to anything Redskin related could cause a stroke, or heart attack, due to flashbacks brought on by the overuse of hallucinogenics in our past.

Thank you.
