The days of longtime Denver Broncos running back coach Bobby Turner‘s reign in the Rockies appear to be numbered.

Per Lindsay Jones of the Denver Post, Turner has been offered the job title of “associate head coach” with Mike Shanahan and the Washington Redskins. That, of course, would involve a promotion, which is why Josh McDaniels relented to the interview after initially denying it.

Now it would seem the only way Turner stays in Denver is if he leverages Shanahan’s deal to a matching or exceeding offer in Denver, if both parties are interested.

It’s eerie how this entire situation played out almost exactly as we speculated — while we were mistaken about the letter of the law and coaching interviews, the spirit of it prevailed: Shanahan came back with a hocus-pocus promotion to pry Turner away.

    It's unfortunate that the NFL allows teams to make up these phony “associate” job titles in order to hire coaches who are under contract with other teams. Everyone knows Turner will be doing the same thing in Washington that he is doing in Denver.

    WTF one comment on this screw you Shanny for trying to take all the staff. You gave us 2 super bowls, but your pressing your luck mo.

  • AtomicLeo

    Given the decline of the running game this season, I'm surprised McD wanted to keep him. Good luck in Washington.
