The Chargers have signed head coach Norv Turner to a three-year contract extension, extending his current deal through the 2013 season.

Turner led San Diego to a 13-3 record this season, winning 11 straight games to close out the year before losing to the Jets in the divisional round of the playoffs. In three seasons with the Chargers, Turner has a 32-16 regular-season record and has captured three AFC West crowns.

“I’m extremely proud of the job Norv has done with this team,” said team president Dean Spanos. “In three seasons he’s led the team to three division titles. I’m confident that if we strengthen our roster and continue to provide Norv the assets he needs, this team will have continued success.”

It's likely that the Chargers worked out Turner's extension during the 2009 season, but they have a policy of not announcing contractual information until the offseason. The 58-year-old Turner, who was named NFL Coach of the Year by USA Today, has the top winning percentage in franchise history.
