You fire your head coach because he is unsuccessful in the playoffs. Then you replace him with Norv Turner, who as a head coach, has participated in one playoff game, and lost. You have got to be kidding me.
Today the Chargers hired Norv Turner as head coach. Turner, once famed offensive coordinator for the Cowboys, is thought to have shaped Troy Aikman into a Hall of Fame quarterback. But Turner has not had as much success while at the head coach position.
He spent 7 seasons at head coach with the Redskins going 49-59-1. After striking out with the Redskins, he went back to be the offensive coordinator for the Chargers in 2001 then Miami in 02 and 03. He was hired as head coach for the Raiders in 04 and went 5-11. He was fired at the end of the next season after going 4-12, winning only one divisional game during his stint with the Raiders. In 2006 Norv went back to offensive coordinator, this time for the 49ers.
You know history repeats itself, look at Norv's career.
Good offensive coordinator. Bad head coach.
Thanks to AJ Smith, you may never see LaDanian in the playoffs again.
