It was no surprise Tuesday afternoon when the news broke that the Washington Commanders fired offensive coordinator Scott Turner.
Last week, Turner didn’t sound too confident about his job status, while head coach Ron Rivera didn’t have much to say. Then, on Saturday, a Washington Post report stated up to nine players were upset with Turner’s play-calling, essentially sealing Turner’s fate.
As you might expect, many Washington fans were happy with the news. Some believe many of Washington’s offensive issues don’t fall on Turner. Turner has dealt with eight starting quarterbacks during his three seasons in Washington. Journeyman Taylor Heinicke was the Commanders’ best quarterback during that time and someone who Turner picked up off the street.
Regardless, Rivera will be looking for a new offensive coordinator as he heads into year four of his regime.
Let’s see how Twitter reacted to the Turner news.
