Chargers Gives Norv Turner Three-Year Contract Extension

Coming off their upset loss to the New York Jets, the Chargers made a decision in regards to the future employment of head coach Norv Turner.  They've extended it. 

San Diego signed Norv to a three-year contract extension Monday, extending his contract through the 2013 season.

"I’m extremely proud of the job Norv has done with this team," said [team president Dean] Spanos. "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."

Chargers blog Bolts From The Blue is happy about the decision, even though many others might not be.

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.

Just imagine if he ever takes the team to the Super Bowl.  They might make him king!
