It's Official: Chargers Retain Smith And Turner

Moments ago Dean Spanos made it official, announcing that GM AJ Smith and coach Norv Turner will return for the 2012 season. In a statement released at, Spanos said, "Bottom line, I believe these two men give us the best chance to get back to the playoffs. A.J. Smith is the best man to improve our roster, and Norv Turner is the best man to lead that roster on the field."

Even though recent history might suggest otherwise, Spanos seems convinced that Smith and Turner can turn things around. That, or he was simply too afraid to make a dramatic move regarding the leadership of a team that has failed to come anywhere close to meeting expectations in recent seasons.
Still, Spanos says he is committed to bringing a championship to San Diego, and this move would seem to be Smith's and Turner's final chance to make that happen. Chargers fans, are you happy or are you hating this decision by Spanos? Sound off now!
