Markos, Turner Named Special Teams Co-Coordinators At Virginia

March 20, 2000

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. - University of Virginia head football coach George Welsh announced today that Art Markos and David Turner have been named special teams co-coordinators.

In this new position, they will share the responsibility of overseeing four phases of special teams play-punt team, punt return team, kickoff team and kickoff return team.

They will be assisted in these four areas by the other members of the coaching staff.

Markos, a member of Welsh's original staff that came to Charlottesville in 1982, was named UVa's wide receivers coach last month. He had coached the defensive secondary since 1991. Markos was the defensive line coach from 1982-85, the defensive ends coach from 1986-88 and the defensive ends/strong safety coach in 1989-90. He has coached four All-Americans at UVa, including punter Will Brice, defensive backs Percy Ellsworth and Anthony Poindexter and defensive end Ray Savage.

The upcoming season is Turner's fourth at UVa. He coached the defensive tackles at UVa from 1997-98, before taking over as linebackers coach last season. Turner moves back to defensive tackles coach this season.
