It seemed like the fate of Norv Turner was written. Actually, it was, by the UT San Diego in more than one article and splashed across the front page. Then came Sundays game at the Steelers. A game that was supposed to give Chargers fans that last little bit of reassurance that Dean Spanos was going to be able to follow through and commit to firing Turner. The Chargers dominated and Spanos gave Turner the game ball. What the heck?
Not exactly the reassurance we were looking to get, but I am still optimistic. Especially with the news of Cam Cameron being let go from the Ravens. This is a great spot for Norv. They may possibly already be in a discussion. Norv may also turn to the Panthers where his son Scott is offensive quality control coach. They can find a spot in the coaching staff for Norv and being the family guy he is, that would make him happy.
It’s still a three million dollar hit to Spanos, but there may be a clause in the contract that allows for a reduction if Turner lands another job.
That’s all I have for today, I’ll keep you posted as new news comes up. Boltup!
