Source: Norv Turner still on shaky ground

San Diego's Thursday night win reportedly saved Norv Turner's job, but for how long? Owner Dean Spanos had thought through what he might do if the Chargers had lost their fourth straight game, two sources told Yahoo! Sports. As hard as it would have been (the Chargers don't have anybody else on the coaching staff who has ever been an offensive coordinator or who has called the plays), Spanos likely would have pulled the plug on Turner. And according to the aforementioned report, he would have been replaced by special-teams coordinator Rich Bisaccia. ... The real question is whether Turner -- who is still under immense pressure, according to one of the sources -- will continue to survive his merry-go-round run on the coaching hot seat. (Yahoo!

Meyer pushing for Miller-Tebow summit series

Tim Tebow remains tight with his old coach. "I talk to him at least once a week," [Urban Meyer] told The Plain Dealer. "We plan on getting together in the off-season. It's family. There can't be a better relationship." Meyer plans to use it. His old quarterback and new quarterback [Braxton Miller] know each other a bit, but ... "In the off-season, I want it more," Meyer said. "It's so hard when they're busy during the season. And Braxton is still figuring out how things work. But I would love for those guys to get face-to-face, even train a little bit together, work out together. Tim is so busy, but I'm going to push for that to happen real hard." Tebow, the 25th pick of the 2010 NFL draft, admitted a Columbus trip could be in his off-season itinerary. (The Plain Dealer) Comment
