http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap1000000106869/article/norv-turner-aj-smith-reportedly-out-for-chargers-at-seasons-end

Kevin Acee of the U-T San Diego reported Thursday that general manager A.J. Smith and coach Norv Turner will be fired at the end of the season. Acee's sources said that Chargers president Dean Spanos "essentially decided at least a month ago" that Turner would be let go. Spanos also decided recently that Smith will be let go.

This is a move that should have been done a long time ago. You never wish to see people lose their jobs, but this is in the best interest of the Chargers' franchise

not surprised. the chargers are a mess. Imo they did a terrible job replacing vincent jackson with robert meachem and eddie royal. malcom floyd is a good wr, but not a number 1.

I may not be surprised if the Chargers go after Bruce Arians for a head coaching job. Do you think they will?

Took them long enough, too late now. Maybe you should have fired both of them 3 years ago. What clowns.

Oh say it ain't so.

I wonder if Eli Manning will send his condolences to Mr. Smith.

Someone on the forum told me that Arians has gone on the record and said he is happy as an OC here and will not take a HC position

Update:

"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. I will make my evaluations at the end of the season. Anything coming out now -- from sources or otherwise -- is pure speculation."

Similar rumblings occurred late last season, but Spanos changed his mind and kept Turner around.

"Those with knowledge of plans that are already in motion said it seems certain there will be no last-minute change of heart this time," Acee wrote.

One Superbowl appearence1994

So fast forward to today they are not winning heads will roll.

they have had some good seasons with Fouts, Humphries, Rivers at QB, but never have been able to get it done in the playoffs really. Like the other poster said, lots of good, great players. Winslow, Joiner, Dean, Muncie, LT, Gates, Seau, Fouts, Rivers, etc.. Personally ,after that chargers announcers comments to the effect of calling all Colt's fans cud chewing farmers I hope they lose every game.
