The San Diego Union Tribune is reporting that Chargers head coach Norv Turner will almost certainly be fired at the end of the season, with general manager A.J. Smith likely to follow him out the door.

Turner was understood to have been told last month that he quickly needed positive results to save his job, but November only added four more defeats, to leave San Diego fourth in the AFC West standings.
Since joining the Chargers back in 2007, Turner has amassed a 45-30 record, and led the team to the playoffs three times. However, since 2010, he's only 13-14, including a 9-7 postseason-less campaign last year.
One name I've heard circulating as a possible replacement for Turner is Jeff Fisher, former head coach of the Tennessee Titans.
Of course, this is just speculation, but I do think Fisher would be a solid choice to take over. He's still fairly young (only 53), and already has a good track record of success. He has a career record of 142-120, and in 1999 he led the Titans to their lone Super Bowl appearance. Which by the way, would still be one more than San Diego has ever been in.
