Roy spent eleven seasons as the head coach for the Wichita Wings and led the most successful seasons, winning the 1981 Major Indoor Soccer League Western Division Championship. In total, Turner won 254 career games with the Wings and they made the MISL/National Professional Soccer League (NPSL) playoffs in ten of the eleven seasons.
