Turner takes leading role on UNC's veteran offensive line

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) — The way coach Larry Fedora sees it, Landon Turner is the perfect leader for North Carolina's offensive line.

He's a fifth-year senior wrapping up a tumultuous career marked by NCAA investigations, two coaching changes, an overhaul to a no-huddle offense, even a postseason ban that kept the Tar Heels out of the Atlantic Coast Conference championship game in 2012. He also balances a relentless on-field drive with an easygoing demeanor that is just as interested in one day writing a novel as playing in the NFL.

"He's not your stereotypical offensive lineman," Fedora said.
