Head Coach Ron Turner
A few years ago, Florida International University was the whipping boy of the Football Bowl Subdivision. They were scheduled for a guaranteed win. Head coach Mario Cristobal changed that, but after he was fired; FIU has once again sunk to the bottom of the FBS.
First-year Florida International University head coach Ron Turner has to follow the program’s best coach who took the team to its only two bowl games before being fired after a down season last year and do it all while playing in a tougher conference.
When Florida International University Athletic Director Pete Garcia fired head football coach Mario Cristobal, he said he wanted a big name hire to take over the program. Late Thursday night, word leaked out who the “big” name is that Garcia selected.
