SAN DIEGO (AP) Norv Turner says he hasn't given much thought to what's expected to be his last week as coach of the San Diego Chargers.

Turner has heard all the speculation he'll be fired because the Chargers are out of the playoffs for the third straight year.

The coach says team president Dean Spanos hasn't told him anything about his future. Spanos has said he'll decide on Turner and general manager A.J. Smith's fates after the season. But Turner says he's aware it's been an ongoing evaluation.

Asked how he thinks it'll turn out, Turner said Monday: ``I don't think it matters what I think.''

The Chargers finish at home against the Oakland Raiders, who fired Turner after he coached them from 2004-05.

Turner also coached the Washington Redskins from 1994 until being fired 13 games into the 2000 season.
