Norv Turner: Chargers aren’t ready to make the playoffs right away - Doug Farrar
Norv said that he believed the Chargers to be the most talented team in the NFL his first three years there -- when the organization made the postseason every year -- and not so good in the final three. "We've had too many changes," he said. "We've lost too many people."

Norv Turner's standing ovation - Michael Gehlken
Inside the team room at Chargers Park, Norv Turner stood before his players — technically, at this point, his former players — and spoke about the game the day before. He announced the recipients of game balls.

Chargers to interview Caldwell, Gamble, Keim for GM - Michael Gehlken
The team has received permission to interview at least three other personnel men around the league, said a source familiar with the search. A fourth man, Matt Russell, Broncos director of player personnel and top assistant to executive vice president of football operations John Elway, declined its interview request.

Players React to Turner's Dismissal - Ryan Schuler
When Turner broke the news during a team meeting at the facility Monday morning, the players were saddened by their coach’s dismissal. Here are some of the reactions from the players:

Exclusive Interview with Ron Wolf - Chargers.com
The decision on who will be the next general manager and head coach for the San Diego Chargers is an important undertaking that will set the course for the franchise. To ensure they hire the best candidate possible, the team hired former Green Bay Packers General Manager Ron Wolf as a consultant throughout the process. Wolf reached two Super Bowls with Green Bay, beating the New England Patriots in XXXI, and has been in the NFL since 1963.

Thoughts on Chargers' search - Bill Williamson
I think Wolf’s involvement in San Diego is a strong indication that in-house candidate Jimmy Raye will have major competition for the job. If the Chargers were sold on Raye, I don’t think Wolf would have been brought in to help. Expect the general manager search to be fairly fast. The general manager is going to have a say in hiring the coach, so the process has to be swift.

ReFo: Raiders @ Chargers, Week 17 - Neil Hornsby
If we are going to hold executives accountable for the poor decisions we need to praise the good ones and signing Eric Weddle (+2.9) to a free agent deal many saw as too rich was excellent business. Unbelievably omitted from the Pro Bowl, this was a great advertisement for just the sort of all-around player he’s become. Although the force and recovery of the Rod Streater fumble was called back on an unrelated penalty, it was still a great example of how he’s making things happen. How many free safeties beat a fullback and make the tackle for loss?
