Report: Norv Turner, Chargers General Manager A.J. Smith to Be Fired at End of Season

Seemingly every season during his tenure as head coach of the San Diego Chargers, Norv Turner has faced questions of job security. Every season, it's all amounted to just talk — until now.

Turner and general manager A.J. Smith are likely to to fired at the end of the season, The San Diego Union-Tribune reports. President Dean Spanos says he has "no choice" but to fire Turner, who has a record of 45-30 in his five seasons with the Chargers.

Spanos is reportedly still considering Smith's status, although league sources believe he will be fired.

The Chargers began the season 4-1 and were atop the AFC West. However, six straight losses and poor play from quarterback Philip Rivers have put the team in last place in the division.
