COACH: NORV TURNER
FIFTH SEASON WITH THE CHARGERS (41--23)
He took the Chargers to the AFC Championship Game in his first season, after inheriting a club with 11 Pro Bowl players. But the arrow has been trending down ever since, with only one playoff win over the last three seasons. Normally his seat would be red hot, but Turner is viewed as G.M. A.J. Smith's guy. Still, will Turner's job be safe if the team misses the postseason for a second straight year?
