Found October 30, 2012 on NFL Trade Rumors:
According to the Associated Press, the San Diego Chargers are unlikely to fire head coach Norv Turner during the season. Turner has once again come under criticism for the team’s up and down start to the 2012 season. The Chargers are currently 3-4, but this weekend’s loss to the Browns was fairly demoralizing. Owner Dean Spanos isn’t know for “knee-jerk reactions,” and the fact that Turner is also the team’s play-caller makes it seem even more unlikely that they would shake things up in the coming weeks, assuming that improvements are not made. Turner’s contract runs through the 2013 season, which also helps his chances of finishing out the season, since the Chargers would have to eat some amount of his salary. “You’re coaching on a week-to-week basis,” said Turner on Monday. “I’m coaching to do the best job I can to get our team ready to play Kansas City. All those other conversations, they’re going to take place. You know they’re going to take place.”
