FIU staff's Turner count takes a hit

Ron Turner's new staffing plan at Florida International has seemingly been based -- up to this point -- on hiring as many coaches related to Ron Turner as he can find. (The Miami Herald did a marvelously succinct summary of the collection earlier this month, when Turner sons Cameron and Morgan were brought on board with the Golden Panthers: "Morgan Turner joins brother Cameron Turner, FIU's quarterbacks and wide receivers coach. Ron Turner, who'll serve as his own offensive coordinator, knows the younger Turners the same way. He knew their mother, Wendy Turner, first.")

Turner's scheme took a significant hit Tuesday with the departure of Morgan to Stanford, where he'll coach tight ends. Morgan had served as an assistant on the Cardinal's staff since 2010 before joining up with his family FIU in early February. Choosing between life in Miami or Palo Alto? It's a rough life young Morgan Turner leads. Per Turner-the-Elder's official school bio, he has no remaining sons left to fill the void created by Morgan's absence.
