Texas Tech head coach Tommy Tuberville announced Wednesday that former Texas A&M assistant Jim Turner has joined the football staff and will serve as the offensive line coach.

“Jim (Turner) is an excellent coach and we are fortunate to have him on our staff,” Tuberville said in an announcement Tech released. “The job he did at Texas A&M is exactly why we wanted him on board. They gave up fewer sacks than anyone in the country, and in this offense the line is critical to your success.”

He had been with the Aggies since 2008, and will now replace Matt Moore, who was let go recently after five years of coaching the Red Raiders offensive line.

Turner molded one of the best offensive lines in college football down in College Station. This past season, his group led the nation in fewest sacks allowed as Texas A&M only surrendered eight over the course of the 12-game regular season.  The O-line also cleared the way for the Aggies to boast the nation’s 21st-ranked rushing attack.
