Commanders Fire Offensive Coordinator Scott Turner

by MCS Staff

The Washington Commanders have parted ways with offensive coordinator, Scott Turner. The news, first reported by NBC Sports JP Finlay, was expected following Washington finishing 20th in total offense. Turner has been with Washington, as offensive coordinator, since head coach Ron Rivera arrived in 2020. The offense averaged 330.3 yards per game with 126.1 yards on the ground (12th) and 204.2 yards through the air (21st). Ron Rivera released the following statement:

“I met with Coach Turner today and informed him that we will be moving in another direction going forward with the offensive coordinator position,” Rivera said in a statement. “Unfortunately, we did not live up to the expectations and standard that I expected to see from our offensive unit. I felt it was best for a fresh start at the coordinator position heading into next year. I have a tremendous amount of respect for Scott and thanked him for his three years of service to our organization. I wish Scott and his family all the best in the future.”
