— The San Diego Chargers have fired general manager A.J. Smith and coach Norv Turner after missing the playoffs for the third straight season.

Coming after a season of stunning come-from-ahead losses and increasing fan anger, the firings complete a startling fall for a team that won the AFC West from 2006-09.

The Chargers are the third team to fire Turner, who has an overall head coaching record of 114-122-1.

Despite having what was perceived as one of the NFL’s most-talented rosters for several seasons, Smith and Turner never got the Chargers to the Super Bowl.
