Needs conformation on Norv Turner & AJ Smith.


 

from ESPN

 

San Diego Chargers coach Norv Turner and general manager A.J. Smith were fired Monday, the team announced.





"I thank A.J. and Norv for the determination and integrity they brought to the Chargers each and every day," team president Dean Spanos said in a statement.



"Both Norv and A.J. are consummate NFL professionals, and they understand that in this league, the bottom line is winning. My only goal is the Super Bowl, and that is why I have decided to move in a new direction with both our head coach and general manager positions. I am committed to our great fans, and we will do whatever we possibly can to achieve that goal."



The Chargers have hired former Packers general manager Ron Wolf as a consultant to help them on their GM and coaching searches for the next month or two. Wolf's first day with the Chargers will be Tuesday.



Turner told reporters after Sunday's game that he expected the team would begin looking for a new coach.



"Obviously, we're going to meet with the team, and I'm sure they'll start looking for a new coach," said Turner, who has one year left on his contract at $3 million.



After the Chargers flopped in 2011, Spanos gave Turner and Smith a reprieve. But in 2012, the Chargers finished 7-9 and missed the playoffs for the third straight season.



Turner got the Chargers to the AFC Championship Game in his first season before losing at New England. Since then, though, there's been a steady decline.



Turner, 60, was 55-40 in seven seasons with the Chargers after being hired in 2007. Turner, who also has coached the Redskins and Raiders, has a 114-122-1 career record.



From the beginning, many outsiders believed Smith wanted a puppet of a head coach after butting heads with Marty Schottenheimer for two years before Spanos fired the coach because of what he called a "dysfunctional" relationship with the GM.



Schottenheimer was fired after a 14-2 season and a home-playoff pratfall against New England and replaced by Turner in February 2007 in what was an unpopular hire among the team's fans.







 






Smith, 63, has come under fire for the erosion of talent from a roster that at one time was considered among the NFL's best.



Smith's best draft was in 2004, when he took Eli Manning with the first pick despite Archie Manning's request that he not do so, then swapped the player's rights to the New York Giants for Philip Rivers and additional picks he used on kicker Nate Kaeding that year and Shawne Merriman the following year.



Besides his tiff with Schottenheimer, Smith's iron-fisted dealings with players have turned off some people. He mocked LaDainian Tomlinson toward the end of the running back's time in San Diego and used hardball negotiating tactics against tight end Antonio Gates in 2005 and wide receiver Vincent Jackson and left tackle Marcus McNeill in 2010.



The Chargers in 2012 suffered their first losing season since 2003. San Diego's current three-season playoff drought is its longest stretch out of the postseason since a drought that lasted from 1996-2003.

New request-can I make Lane Kiffin my 10 point pick and bump everyone else down one (until the 1-Mike D'Antoni is not the 1 any longer)?
