Biography

Curtis Turner is in his sixth year as a player development coach at Georgia Tech. Prior to his arrival on The Flats in 2013, he spent 10 years on the strength and conditioning staff at Vanderbilt.

Turner joined Vanderbilt’s staff as an assistant speed, strength and conditioning coach from 2003-10. During that time, he assisted in all facets of player development for football training programs. He was also responsible for the complete design and implementation of the yearly training program for Vandy’s men’s and women’s golf and tennis programs.

In 2010, he was promoted to director of strength and conditioning for men’s basketball, a role he held until he departed for Georgia Tech in May 2013.

Turner has trained or assisted in the training of nearly 40 current or former professional athletes, 13 all-Americans and more than 50 all-conference selections. An active speaker, coach and clinic organizer, his programs have been featured in Men’s Health and Golf Digest magazines and on Yahoo! Sports and ESPNU All-Access.

He is certified by the College Strength and Conditioning Coaches Association (CSCCA). In May 2018, he was named a Master Strength and Conditioning Coach by the CSCCA. He was one of only 18 individuals to earn the distinction — the strength-and-conditioning profession’s highest honor — in 2018.

Turner graduated from Clemson in 2003 with a bachelor’s degree in psychology and sociology education.
