Reports: Raiders hire Scott Turner as passing-game assistant

The Las Vegas Raiders have hired Scott Turner as an assistant coach in charge of the passing game, several reports said Friday.

Turner, 40, spent the past three seasons as the Washington Commanders’ offensive coordinator before his dismissal Jan. 10.

Turner’s father, longtime NFL coach Norv Turner, spent two seasons as the head coach of the then-Oakland Raiders in 2004-05. Scott Turner also attended college in Las Vegas at UNLV, where he was a backup quarterback.

In Las Vegas, it’s unclear who Turner’s starting quarterback will be, as the Raiders are widely believed to be ready to move on from veteran Derek Carr via trade or release.

Josh McDaniels is returning for a second season as the Raiders’ head coach, alongside offensive coordinator Mick Lombardi. Las Vegas went 6-11 in 2022.

The Commanders’ offense in 2022 ranked 20th in total yardage (330.3 yards per game) and 24th in scoring (18.9 points per game) under Turner.
