Norv Turner: New Chargers head coach


[url][sign in to see URL]

  

The San Diego Chargers have their new head coach and it's the man everyone thought was going to be the head coach in Dallas.

[sign in to see URL] has learned that the Chargers have tabbed 49ers offensive coordinator Norv Turner as their new head coach. Turner went to San Diego late last night to work out a deal with the team.

General Manager A.J. Smith held talks with Turner late last night and ironed out a deal. This morning Turner informed his current boss Mike Nolan that he did in fact have the job and was moving on.

[sign in to see URL] first reported the Chargers' direction at about midnight Sunday.

Sources also contend that Turner is leaning toward hiring Ted Cottrell, a long-time defensive coach, to run the Chargers defense. Cottrell worked in the league office this past season but is one of the best minds in the league when it comes to running a 3-4 scheme.

Oddly, on Sunday Rex Ryan appeared to be the leading candidate to get the job. What or if anything happened to change that remains to be seen.

Turner was long assumed to be the man Jerry Jones would hire to replace Bill Parcells as head coach but the Cowboys sent Turner back to the Bay without a new job or a new title. That title and job may now come three weeks later in the best city in America to "have to" work in — sunny San Diego.

Turner was the Chargers' offensive coordinator for LaDainian Tomlinson's rookie year and now will be in charge of an offense that needs to find even more ways for Tomlinson to work his magic.

In a bit of circular logic ... Turner was extremely close to getting the Cowboys gig that eventually went to Wade Phillips, the man Cottrell may replace in San Diego now.

Calls to Smith and Turner were not returned.
