Debuted for West Coast in 1989, and became one of their best players. He finished runner-up to Jim Stynes in the 1991 Brownlow Medal and played in a premiership for the Eagles in 1992. Turley retired midway through the next year when forced back to the WAFL after suffering a knee injury. He was convinced to return in 1994, but after playing in a WAFL premiership with West Perth in 1995, he was swapped to Melbourne for Andy Lovell.
Turley played 16 games in his only year at the Demons, and finished in the top 10 of the Best and Fairest, but was troubled by injury and played most of the season until extreme duress. During the 1997 pre-season he suffered a reoccurrence of a disc injury that first affected him in 1992, and retired at 31 years old rather than rehabilitate the injury and attempt a comeback. After Round 3 his place on the senior list was taken by Nathan Bassett.
Turley rejoined West Perth for two games as a playing assistant coach in 2001.
