The candidates are:
Chargers ousted: The San Diego Chargers were tossed from the AFC playoffs following a 17-14 home loss to the Jets on Sunday. San Diego was the No. 2 seed and was riding an NFL-high 11-game win streak.
Nolan out in Denver: The Broncos and defensive coordinator Mike Nolan mutually parted ways after one season. Nolan made an underwhelming unit the No. 7 defense in the league.
Turner extended: The Chargers gave coach Norv Turner a long-expected three-year contract extension that keeps him in San Diego until 2013. The extension came a day after the Chargers were knocked out of the playoffs.
