Chargers Fire Head Coach Norv Turner
By San Diego Chargers NFL Tickets Staff Writer: R. Murray
Chargers fire Head Coach Norv Turner:
It came to no surprise for Chargers fans when head coach Norv Turner was fired. A serach for a new head coach is on and Chragers fans are excited for any news there is about the search. Who do you think the new Chargers head coach will be?
Fired Coach Norv Turner and General Manager A.J. Smith:
The Chargers are the third team to fire Turner, who has an overall head-coaching record of 114-122-1. Turner was an unpopular hire in February 2007, seen as a pawn controlled by the authoritarian Smith after the GM won a power struggle with old-school coach Marty Schottenheimer.
Despite having what was perceived as one of the NFL's most talented rosters for several seasons, Smith and Turner never got the Chargers to the Super Bowl.
Turner was 56-40 with the Chargers overall but only 24-24 the past two seasons.
Turner has one season at $3 million left on his contract. Smith has two years left at $2 million annually.
