San Diego Chargers coach Norv Turner and general manager A.J. Smith will be fired Monday, league sources told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.
Turner told reporters after Sunday's game that he expected the team will begin looking for a new coach.
"Obviously, we're going to meet with the team, and I'm sure they'll start looking for a new coach," said Turner, who has one year left on his contract at $3 million.
Smith, 63, has come under fire for the erosion of talent from a roster that at one time was considered among the NFL's best.

Chargers RB situation is muddled

“Well, we’ve got a chance to get Ronnie Brown back” he said. “[Jackie Battle] will get a chance to play. And [Curtis Brinkley] played some yesterday, though I don’t know that he would play on third down. And we’ll probably add Edwin Baker to the 53-man roster. I don’t know that he would be active, but we’d have to see where Ronnie Brown is.”
Reading the tea leaves, it appears that the RB depth chart goes Brown, Battle, Brinkley and Baker, but it's a crapshoot. Battle and Brown figure to split the work if Brown can play, but Brinkley did get more touches than Battle in Week 15.
Malcolm Floyd placed on IR

Charger WR Malcom Floyd's ankle is a sprain, not break, per league source. He was placed on IR.
Floyd will be fine for 2013, just wouldn't be able to recover and come back at this point in the season. He could have a decent partner in Danario Alexander on the other side, who emerged in the second half of the season. But, Floyd's production dropped a bit in that same span. The Chargers will likely see a lot of changes before taking the field next season.
