Today the Turner Golden Bears of Turner USD #202 announced the hiring of Assistant Coach Julian Parks to the promotion of Head Coach replacing Jeremy Milne.
Jeremy Milne began his Football career as an Olathe North Eagles Quarterback, and was part of the first three-peat State Championship run led by former Head Coach Gene Weir.
Prior to becoming the Turner Head Coach beginning in the 2012 season, his Coaching lineage takes him from the SM West Vikings (Tim Callaghan) , Avila Eagles (MO), Lawrence Chesty Lions (Dirk Wedd), Richland Rebels (TX) and Blue Valley North.
Throughout the course of his five years with the Turner Golden Bears, Jeremy Milne amassed a record of 17-29 overall, 10-22 Kaw Valley, and 0-1 in the 5A playoffs falling to Topeka Seaman in week-9 of this past 2016 season.
On or off the radar, there are many Sunflower High School sports alumni who are either Head Coaches, or Assistants in Fall, Winter, and Spring sports in the KCAL, and Kaw Valley Leagues.
