Source: Bucs hire Turner as QBs coach

Josh Freeman has a new tutor.

A source told that Ron Turner was hired as Tampa Bay’s quarterbacks coach.

The brother of San Diego coach Norv Turner, Ron Turner held the same position last season in Indianapolis. The 58-year-old Turner spent the past two years with the Colts after serving as Chicago’s offensive coordinator from 2005 to 2009.

Freeman entered the 2011 season regarded as one of the league’s rising passers, but he regressed with 16 touchdowns and 22 interceptions as the Buccaneers finished 4-12.

Turner will be working with new Bucs head coach Greg Schiano and offensive coordinator Mike Sullivan, who was previously Eli Manning’s quarterbacks coach with the New York Giants.
