The San Diego Chargers have their guy.
The Chargers announced Tuesday they have selected Denver Broncos offensive coordinator Mike McCoy as their new head coach. The team will formally introduce McCoy as their coach during a news conference scheduled for 5 p.m. ET.
The Chargers were in the market for an offensive-minded leader, and McCoy fits the bill. San Diego knows him well, having faced Denver eight times during McCoy's four-year tenure with the Broncos. NFL.com's Albert Breer reported earlier Tuesday that theChargers had agreed on a deal to make McCoy their coach and the successor to Norv Turner. A Broncos team source told Breer that Denver's former offensive coordinator informed the team of his plans Tuesday morning.
Wow, I can't believe this. Why would they hire this guy when Lovie Smith was available? The only reason that this guy was hired in the first place was because most people didn't even expect Broncos' coordinators and coaching staff to be available for interviews until after the Super Bowl. Come on though, Smith was clearly the better fit, this team needs defense and an offensive line for Rivers. They had enough pieces to quickly contend again too...
