ESPN is reporting that The Chargers are about to hire Norv Turner as their head coach. That's not a misprint. Norv Turner of the 9-23 Oakland Raiders for two seasons, and Norv Turner of the under-performing Washington Redskins is now the coach of the San Diego Chargers.
Norv Turner is known for his down-field passing game and power running game. That should really bode well for a team with the fastest and slickest WR in the game that is a dual running/receiving threat, not to mention the relatively poor Wide Receivers that the Chargers have, as well as the Quarterback who is accurate but not really known for his down-field arm. Add to that the fact that Turner gets to work with Tedd Cotrell as his Defensive Coordinator. He was the mastermind behind the 4th to last Minnesota Vikings Defense under Mike Tice. I mean giving up 370 yards per game in the NFC Central is good, right? Right?
