It doesn’t sound like Norv Turner is going to be fired by the Chargers on Black Monday.
The team alerted the media that Turner will have his usual end of the season press conference Monday at 10:30 a.m. PT. Chargers owner Dean Spanos doesn’t appear to be in any rush to make a final decision.
“I’m looking at the entire organization,” Spanos said via Kevin Acee of the San Diego Union-Tribune. “I’m going to sleep on this for a couple days. . . . There are a lot of things I want to think about.”
The “entire organization” will surely start with an evaluation of Turner and Chargers G.M. A.J. Smith. It sure sounds like Spanos is conflicted. Could San Diego’s win Sunday save Turner?
“It was really exciting,” Spanos said. “I’m really proud of them. I think it really shows how resilient they are, how hard they play for this coach.”
Spanos seems to be searching for reasons for optimism, pointing out the team won four of its first five and four of its last five.
If nothing else, it sounds like Norv Turner gave his owner something to think about this week.
