NFL: Chargers extend Turner's contract day after big loss


Associated Press

SAN DIEGO The San Diego Chargers have given coach Norv Turner a three-year contract extension through 2013.

The extension was announced in a release Monday night, 24 hours after the Chargers were shocked 17-14 by the New York Jets in the divisional playoffs.

The Chargers didn't make Turner or general manager A.J. Smith available for comment.

The extension had been expected. What hadn't been expected was San Diego's playoff collapse. Some had picked the Chargers to win the Super Bowl.
