The Las Vegas Raiders hired Scott Turner as a coordinator in charge of the passing game on Friday.

Turner, 40, spent the past three seasons as the Washington Commanders’ offensive coordinator before his dismissal Jan. 10.

Turner’s father, longtime NFL coach Norv Turner, spent two seasons as the head coach of the then-Oakland Raiders in 2004-05. Scott Turner also attended college in Las Vegas at UNLV, where he was a backup quarterback.

“Scott brings a wealth of knowledge from his experience around the league and is already familiar with both the Raiders and the Las Vegas community,” head coach Josh McDaniels said in a statement. “We look forward to Scott’s contributions to the team.”

It’s unclear who Turner’s starting quarterback will be, as the Raiders are widely believed to be ready to move on from veteran Derek Carr via trade or release.

McDaniels is returning for a second season as the Raiders’ head coach, alongside offensive coordinator Mick Lombardi. Las Vegas went 6-11 in 2022.

The Commanders’ offense in 2022 ranked 20th in total yardage (330.3 yards per game) and 24th in scoring (18.9 points per game) under Turner.
