Turner no longer OC; visit cancelled

Perhaps the most interesting part of FIU's release announcing the hirings of running backs coach Kerry Dixon II, linebackers coach Rob Harley and special teams coach Shannon Moore -- a Nebraska native fresh off eight years at FCS school South Dakota State -- was that offensive line coach/run game coordinator Steve Shankweiler got promoted to offensive coordinator.

Last year, Turner served as his own offensive coordinator. This year, it'll be Shankweiler, who applied for but didn't get the head coaching position at Elon in his native North Carolina, who'll do double duty.

So the staff recruiting South Florida has nobody with any South Florida ties beyond Texas native Dixon's one year at FAU recruiting Dade county and three coaches of color out of 10. Not sure how often fishermen bag cheetahs, but let's see how it all works.

 

RECRUITING

FIU's highest-ranked 2014 commit, Orlando Timber Creek wide receiver Javonte Seabury, just Tweeted that his official visit this weekend has been cancelled.
