Norv Turner Awarded Contract Extension

It seems all the calls for Norv Turner to be fired from the team following yesterdays disappointing and heart-breaking loss to the New York Jets have fallen on deaf ears.  San Diego Chargers president Dean Spanos today announced he has signed Head Coach Norv Turner to a 3-year contract extension, keeping him with the team through the 2013 season.

Said Dean Spanos:

I’m extremely proud of the job Norv has done with this team. In three seasons he’s led the team to three division titles. I’m confident that if we strengthen our roster and continue to provide Norv the assets he needs, this team will have continued success.

Despite what the large contingency of detractors in San Diego want you to believe, Norv Turner has become one of the most successful coaches in San Diego Chargers history.  He currently holds the best overall winning percentage in team history at .648 (35-19), as well as the best regular-season winning percentage at .667 (32-16).  The Chargers have won the AFC West division all three years under Coach Turner's tenure.  Additionally, he is tied for the most playoff wins by a Chargers head coach with 3.  Just this past season, he guided the Chargers to a 13 wins, the second-best win count in team history.
