Turner Gill

Former Nebraska quarterback and coach Turner Gill has taken a support staff job at Arkansas 

Former Nebraska quarterback and assistant coach Turner Gill wasn't out of college football for long. After retiring as Liberty's head football coach late last year to spend more time with his wife, Gill took a job at Arkansas as Executive Director of Student-Athlete and Staff Development. 

“Adding someone with Turner’s experience and knowledge to our staff is going to provide a tremendous boost for our student-athletes and our staff,” Arkansas coach Chad Morris said in a statement released by Arkansas. “From his time as a player at Nebraska to working in the NFL with the Green Bay Packers to serving as a head coach, he has so much to offer our athletes, coaches and staff. We’re excited for him to be a Razorback and have him help build our culture.”

Gill had previously been the head coach at Liberty, Kansas and Buffalo —where he won a MAC Championship. Prior to Buffalo, Gill was the Director of Player Development for the Green Bay Packers in 2005. He coached at Nebraska for 13 seasons, his last coming in 2004 for Bill Callahan.
