Report: Norv Turner Claims His Coaching Staff ‘Got Everything Out of Talent’ on Chargers Roster

Norv Turner isn’t going out quietly after being fired by the San Diego Chargers.

After a disappointing season for the Bolts, Turner is placing the blame not on a lack of coaching, but on a lack of talented players. According to ESPN’s Ed Werder, the former head coach thinks that the next guy in line is in for a bit of a rude awakening.

The comment could be seen as a parting shot directed toward the Chargers organization, or toward the man who put the team together: general manager A.J. Smith. Smith was also fired by the team Monday after leading the team since 2005.

Turner went 59-43 in his six years with the Chargers, including a 3-3 mark in the postseason. However, the Chargers failed to make the playoffs in the last three seasons, losing more games each year since 2010. Turner’s career record as a head coach stands at 114-122-1.
