Found January 10, 2013 on NFL Trade Rumors:
According to Colts offensive coordinator Bruce Arians, the Chargers head coaching job is more attractive now that the organization has hired former Colts VP of football operations Tom Telesco as their new GM, per Mike Chappell of the Indianapolis Star. “I would be now that Tommy’s there,’’ Arians said when asked if he was interested in the Chargers. “I think so much of (the) success that teams have are great relationships between the general manager and head coach. And it’s not who has control of the roster. It’s how do we get the best players? It’s obvious why Arians is interested in the Chargers job as he’s familiar with Telesco and his philosophy towards building a roster. Philip Rivers should also make the job more appealing given that he has had success in the past and head coaching jobs rarely come with even a decent quarterback on their roster.

San Diego Chargers 2013 Needs

3 years ago everyone was calling for Norv Turner to be fired because of the Chargers’ tendency to have strong regular seasons and then choke in the playoffs every year. I bet the Chargers would trade the last three years for that. Over the last 3 years, the Chargers have begun their underachieving earlier, missing the playoffs in all 3 seasons.
