DURHAM — Steve Turner, who won three state titles in 23 years as Jordan High School boys’ soccer coach, has resigned.
Turner became the Falcons head coach in 1987 and took a two-year hiatus during his tenure after the births of his two children.
Turner said in a phone interview Friday that he made the move — he is awaiting confirmation as a faculty member at another school — for family and professional reasons. His status with soccer is unclear, though he said he hopes to work with the program at his new school as an assistant.
In addition to turning the Falcons’ soccer program into one of the best in the area — they tied for the PAC-6 regular season title with East Chapel Hill this past season — Turner formerly did double duty, coaching the Jordan girls’ team for 12 years as well.
