Biggs: Ron Turner to join Colts staff

INDIANAPOLIS—Tom Moore could be hanging ’em up for good now.

The Indianapolis Colts have not made an announcement, but the club is adding an assistant to its staff and it’s easy to connect the dots here.

Ex-Bears offensive coordinator Ron Turner is leaving Stanford, where he was hired earlier this month as the offensive coordinator, to take a job with the Colts. It is believed Turner will be the wide receivers coach.

The Colts didn’t have an opening on their staff. Speculation is that wide receivers coach/assistant head coach Clyde Christensen will be promoted to offensive coordinator. He took the job last year at this time when Moore retired. Moore wound up returning in the spring, and now he could be departing for good.

The move makes sense for Turner for a few reasons. He has ties at Stanford, and coached there previously, but his family remains in the Midwest and it’s an opportunity to remain in the NFL.
