Chargers refute Smith/Norv firing
Are general manager A.J. Smith and head coach Norv Turner set to be fired? The Chargers are saying absolutely not ... for now.
The San Diego Tribune's Kevin Acee reported Thursday that Smith and Turner will be let go at season's end, in the wake of yet another disappointing campaign. However, the report was met with a terse denial from team owner Dean Spanos.
"There is only one person in this organization who will make those decisions and that’s me, and I haven’t shared my thoughts with anyone," Spanos said in a statement. "I will make my evaluations at the end of the season. Anything coming out now – from sources or otherwise – is pure speculation.”
