After last night's disappointing 31-20 loss against the Chicago Bears, the San Diego Chargers are now 4-6 and their chances of making the playoffs appear to be slim.
The Oakland Raiders are currently top of the AFC West at 6-4 and while it's not impossible for the Chargers to come back and win the division, questions must now be asked on the future of head coach Norv Turner.
Turner signed a contract extension that will keep him as head coach through the 2013 season but for many Chargers fans, myself included, his time in San Diego must surely be up.
Under Turner, the Chargers have a record of 48-31 including the playoffs. Despite early successes under Turner, the Chargers missed the playoffs last season and are on course to do the same this season.
With the Chargers talented roster getting older and their window of opportunity to win the Super Bowl closing, I think it's time to make a change. This change must surely begin the firing of head coach Norv Turner and possibly the firing of general manager A.J. Smith.
I am now going to outline five reasons why Norv Turner must be fired and suggest five possible candidates as the head coach of the San Diego Chargers.
