According to Jake Steinberg of the Jets Blog, the Jets are ready to part ways with incumbent offensive coordinator Tony Sparano and love the idea of replacing him with soon-to-be-fired Chargers coach Norv Turner.

Norv Turner has led plenty of underachieving teams in San Diego, but there is no denying his success as a coordinator and a playcaller.  He will have plenty of suitors to choose from after his inevitable firing. Turner would give the Jets’ offense instant credibility, which is something they have not had for quite some time.

The problem for the Jets is that they hardly look like an attractive destination for offensive coaches looking to advance their careers. No one knows who the quarterback will be in 2013, and developing Mark Sanchez is not exactly an exciting proposition.

Plus, the organization oozes dysfunction with the fumbling of the Tebow situation and how they have gone about developing their other players.

With so many other suitors, why in the world would Norv Turner pick the Jets?

Money. Unless Woody Johnson is willing to for over some serious cash to bring in a good coach, Norv to the Jets seems highly unlikely.
