    INDIANAPOLIS -- Former Bears offensive coordinator Ron Turner, who was hired this month to the staff of Stanford coach Jim Harbaugh, is leaving to take a job with the Indianapolis Colts, his agent said Saturday.

    Frank Bauer, Turner's agent, told the Tribune he is uncertain what job Turner will assume with the Colts. Their offensive coordinator, Tom Moore, is believed to be set to retire and assistant head coach/receivers coach Clyde Christensen could be in line to replace him. Turner perhaps could replace Christensen as receivers coach.

    "It's an opportunity for him to stay in the NFL and his family can stay in Chicago and he'll be nearby so his daughter can graduate from high school next year," said one league source who learned of the development Friday night.

    Turner was fired by the Bears after the 2009 season along with tight ends coach Rob Boras and offensive line coach Harry Hiestand. He joined Stanford on Feb.17 to oversee quarterbacks and receivers.

    Turner was unavailable for comment, his wife said.

    No reason to be upset. If he's just a position coach, it's probably a good thing. He didn't get hired as a college head coach and NFL offensive coordinator because he has no idea what he's doing. That Bears offense was awful in large part because it wasn't remotely well-built. The offensive line there is garbage.

    I don't know a lot about him but I don't think there is any reason to be upset. The Bears may have done poorly under him but as Kraft pointed out their talent, on offense, isn't great especially the O-Line. Very few, if any, coaches could have done good things with their offense.
