Norv Turner Fired from Oakland Raiders

Posted by Jeff Chan Categories: NFL,

Norv Turner became the sixth NFL head coaching casualty since the end of the season, joining Mike Martz, Mike Tice, Mike Sherman, Jim Haslett and Dom Capers on the unemployment line.  You could see the end of the line for Norv Turner when Randy Moss was interviewed in the middle of the season, and was asked his opinion of Turner.  In pro sports when it comes down to the star player or the head coach, the head coach usually turns out to be the loser.  The Raiders were unable to have a balanced offense attack all year long, even though WR Randy Moss, and RB Lamont Jordan joined the team, and expectations were raised.

With disappointing stops in Oakland and previously in Washington for seven years from ‘94-‘00,  I wonder what teams would now take a chance on Turner as their head coach or even as their offensive coordinator.  The NFL is purely a results driven league and Turner has taken his teams to only one playoff appearance in his 9 total seasons as head coach.
