Chiefs Will See Norv Turner Again In 2011

There was some thought at one point that the AFC West could see three of four teams changing head coaches in 2011. Josh McDaniels has already been fired in Denver, the Chargers failed to make the playoffs under Norv Turner and the Raiders are, well, the Raiders -- who knows?

We're not sure about the Raiders yet but San Diego will not see a change in 2011 --  Norv Turner and GM A.J. Smith will be back next year, the team announced Monday. Via San Diego Union-Tribune:

"I’ve learned the hard way," Spanos said. "Your GM and coach have to be two individuals who work together. It’s very difficult for some teams; I’ve been through it. I like the working relationship at this level. We’re as disappointed as anyone. But I look to 1996 to 2003, when we couldn’t even get (beyond) 8-8. We’ve turned it around, to where we’re a good team and a good organization. There’s a lot of continuity, but we’re still short."

Is this good news or bad news for Chiefs fans? I hate to say it but I think it's bad news. The Chargers under Norv Turner completely own the Chiefs with KC's lone victory coming on Monday Night Football this year. All the other losses were total blowouts. Plus, teams aren't going to rank fourth on offense and eighth on offense and miss the playoffs very often.

What do you think? Norv Turner back in 2011 is good news or bad news for Chiefs fans?
