Turner, 40, is the son of Norv Turner. He was the offensive coordinator for the Commanders the last three seasons and served as the quarterbacks coach for the Carolina Panthers the two seasons prior to that.
Washington was 24th in the league in points and 20th in yards this season as Carson Wentz and Taylor Heinicke split duties at quarterback. The Raiders were 12th in both points and yards this season. Las Vegas will have a new quarterback in 2023 after parting ways with Derek Carr.
