Chargers President Dean Spanos responded Thursday afternoon to a report that head coach Norv Turner and general manager A.J. Smith will be fired at the end of the season.
“There is only one person in this organization who will make those decisions and that’s me, and I haven’t shared my thoughts with anyone," Spanos said in a prepared statement. "I will make my evaluations at the end of the season. Anything coming out now – from sources or otherwise – is pure speculation.”
The Chargers are currently 4-8 and fans have been vocal about the upsetting season.
The team has lost the last four games in a row and many players have exited the season because of injury.
Sunday the Chargers play against the Pittsburgh Steelers at 10 a.m.
