COACHING
A former wide receiver and quarterback in college, Cameron Turner spent his first two seasons on the Panthers' coaching staff assisting wide receivers and will work with the team’s signal callers as he transitions to assistant quarterbacks coach in 2017.

In 2016, Turner helped Kelvin Benjamin to a team-leading seven touchdown receptions in his return to action after suffering a season-ending knee injury in 2015. Benjamin played in all 16 games and narrowly missed his second 1,000-yard receiving season, finishing with 941 yards on 63 receptions. Ted Ginn, Jr. produced more than 700 receiving yards for the second consecutive season and served as a big-play threat, scoring four touchdowns - all of at least 30 yards.

In his first season with Carolina in 2015, Turner worked with a group that helped the Panthers advance to Super Bowl 50, set team records with an NFL-leading 500 points and 59 touchdowns and gain a team-record 357 first downs. Despite losing Benjamin in training camp, Carolina produced 35 receiving touchdowns, tied for third most in the NFL and an increase of 12 from 2014. Ginn scored a career-high 10 touchdowns, becoming the first Panthers wide receiver with double-digit touchdowns since Steve Smith had 12 in 2005. Second-round draft choice Devin Funchess emerged to score five touchdowns, the second most by a rookie in franchise history, and total 31 receptions for 473 yards.

Turner came to Carolina from Florida International following two seasons as the quarterbacks and wide receivers coach from 2013-14.

Turner previously gained NFL experience for two seasons with the Minnesota Vikings from 2011-12, serving as assistant to the head coach, Leslie Frazier. He helped the coaching staff with research projects, coordinated schedules and team travel itineraries, assisted with practice and game preparation and also had game management responsibilities.

He began his coaching career in 2010 at his alma mater, The Citadel, handling wide receivers and aiding with special teams. Additionally, Turner was the school's team liaison for academic and military issues.

PLAYING AND PERSONAL
Turner played quarterback and wide receiver at The Citadel from 2006-09. After redshirting as a freshman, he played quarterback the next two years before suffering a shoulder injury and moving to wide receiver for his final season. He graduated with a degree in business administration.
