On December 14, 2011, Turner Gill was named head coach of Liberty University's football program. Since then, he has led the Flames to 6 wins or more in each of his 6 seasons. In 2018, Liberty began competing as an Independent at the NCAA Division 1 FBS level for the first time in its football history and will become bowl eligible the following year in 2019.
Prior to his time at Liberty, Gill was the head coach of the Kansas Jayhawks from 2010-2011, and the University of Buffalo from 2006-2009 where he was named MAC Coach of the Year in 2007. He also has assistant coaching jobs at Nebraska and in the NFL with the Green Bay Packers.
Gill was an accomplished quarterback under head coach Tom Osborne at the University of Nebraska in the 1980's where he helped lead the Cornhuskers to a 28-2 record as a starter and finishing 4th for the Heisman Trophy in 1983.
On this episode of the podcast, we talk to Coach Gill about coaching at Liberty in their first year as a Division 1 FBS program, his leadership style as a coach, spiritual disciplines he implements to himself and the team, what he learned from Tom Osborne at Nebraska and the mentors that have helped him on his football and faith journey.
