Coach Sumlin filled another coaching vacancy today, hiring veteran defensive line coach David Turner away from SEC West foe Mississippi State. Turner has coached the Bulldog defensive line since the Sylvester Croom era ('07-'08) and has also had previous stops at Alabama, Vanderbilt, and Kentucky. He has consistently fielded very good defensive line units over the past several seasons.
Turner is replacing Mark Hagen, who has returned to coach at Indiana, his alma mater. He will work closely with Coach Terry Price. The Aggies start spring practice on Monday.
