    Chargers set to fire coach Turner, GM Smith

    Anyone see this developing story on NFL.com.



    Looks like it might happen sooner than later. Time will tell but figured it was coming.




    And mods I figured this was the right spot but I could see it turning into smack, but I tried to eliminate that in the opening post.

    Adopted Broncos:
    (2011-2013) Eric Decker
    (2014-2018) Bradley Roby
    (2019-Current) Drew Lock

    Sources: Chargers to fire Norv Turner, A.J. Smith at end of season

    It looks pretty credible.

    http://www.utsandiego.com/news/2012/...hargers-seaso/

    According to Kevin Acee, who follows the Chargers closely:

    It will be finished.

    Not only will head coach Norv Turner be gone at the end of the season, but general manager A.J. Smith will be fired as well, as the Chargers make a monumental break from an era that was arguably the most successful and most disappointing in team history.

    Sources said this week that Chargers President Dean Spanos essentially decided at least a month ago that Turnerís time was drawing to a rapid close. Spanos, sources said, has more recently resigned himself to the fact that Smith canít be kept in the current environment of plummeting performance and fan unrest.

    And unlike last year, when Spanos found enough reason for clemency in a strong finish and past accomplishments, those with knowledge of plans that are already in motion said it seems certain there will be no last-minute change of heart this time.
    The article goes on and on.
