NFL Injury Report:
The San Diego Chargers announced yesterday that former
Denver Broncos offensive coordinator Mike McCoy will become their next head
coach, reports the Associated Press.
"There was no doubt in my mind when I got back on that
plane to go back home," said McCoy, the former Denver Broncos offensive
coordinator who was introduced Tuesday as Chargers' new coach. "They
wanted to keep me here last night. But I said, 'I've got to talk to my wife
about this before.' If I made the decision without talking to my wife, I might
get in a little trouble."
McCoy signed a four-year contract with the Chargers, becoming
the team’s choice to replace Norv Turner who was fired when the season ended.
San Diego also parted ways with general manager A.J. Smith, who was replaced by
McCoy told reporters that he’s not going to be calling the
plays on offense for the Chargers, who haven’t won a playoff game since 2008.
Instead, McCoy plans on hiring an offensive coordinator.
Beyond McCoy, the Chargers also interviewed Lovie Smith, Ken
Whisenhunt, Gus Bradley and Jay Gruden for their head coaching vacancy.
