San Diego Chargers: Kevin Acee with U-T San Diego is reporting that sources tell him that head coach Norv Turner and general manager A.J. Smith will be let go following the season. While we have no reason to doubt Acee, we do feel like we've heard this before and Norv has lived to coach another day.
Idaho: Sources tell us that offensive coordinator Jason Gesser, defensive coordinator Mark Criner and running backs coach Wayne Moses have all been told they will not be retained. Tight ends coach Al Pupunu has been retained. We have also learned that Ronnie Lee (Indiana State) will be named defensive coordinator...and Mike Anderson as linebackers (previously reported).

Sonny Dykes: Steve Berkowitz of USA Today reports that Sonny's buyout of his contract at Louisiana Tech is $500,000; but had they been scheduled for a bowl game and he left before that game the buyout would have been $800,000.
Wisconsin: Barry Alvarez stated today that he doesn't feel it would be the right thing to do to consider Pitt head coach Paul Chryst about the opening given that he's only been at Pitt one season.
The Coach Tracker App:Not often do we see something that will change lives for coaches across the country; but this app will do that. You need to see this...and you need this app.
