John Turner (born February 22, 1956 in Miami, Florida) is a former professional American football player.

Turner graduated from the University of Miami, where he starred as a cornerback. He played 10 seasons in the National Football League, 9 of those with the Minnesota Vikings. In 1997, Turner was hired to coach the expansion St. Paul Sting, a semi-pro American Football team in the Mid-America Football League (MFL). In the team's first and only season, Turner led the Sting to the MFL Championship Game, played at the Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome in Minneapolis, Minnesota. The St. Paul Sting fell to the Minneapolis Lumberjacks in that Championship Game. The Lumberjacks were coached by former St. John's University standout Todd Fultz. Turner played high school football at Miami Norland where the school mascot, like his professional years with Minnesota, was the Vikings.

Turner currently works as an administrative assistant at Park Center Senior High School in Brooklyn Park, Minnesota.[citation needed]
