Dean Spanos will fire Norv Turner and General Manager A.J. Smith at season’s end, according to Kevin Acee. No, seriously, guys, this is really happening this time. Not like last year, when Dean Spanos was going to fire Norv Turner and maybe A.J. Smith at the end of the year.
The Christmas season has officially begun, because now the Norv Turner will be fired post has been written. It is a holiday tradition. I’ve seen this too many times to kill off Norval before he is done.
According to Acee’s report, Spanos is resigned to the idea that he cannot retain A.J. Smith in the current climate and based on the direction the team is heading. Current Director of Player Personnel Jimmy Raye is identified as the apparent replacement for Smith.
