Turner spent the last 15 seasons as running backs coach with the Broncos, including 14 years under Shanahan. Since Turner arrived in 1995, Denver has produced more rushing yards than any team in the league.

The Redskins said Thursday that Turner also will have the title of assistant head coach.

Shanahan has steadily worked to complete his staff since replacing Jim Zorn as Redskins coach last week. Other newcomers include offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan and defensive coordinator Jim Haslett.
