Chargers will hire ex-Cardinals coach Ken Whisenhunt as offensive coordinator.
Instead of filling Mike McCoy's shoes in Denver, Whiz is expected to follow McCoy to the Chargers to work with Philip Rivers. McCoy has already stated that he won't be calling the plays, leaving that job for his coordinator. The Cowboys and Jets had openings as well, but those jobs aren't as attractive. Per the Union-Tribune San Diego, Whisenhunt was likely to be the Chargers' head-coaching choice had McCoy not been available. Whiz and McCoy are both descendants of the Dan Henning offensive tree.

Chargers hired Mike McCoy as their head coach, signing him to a four-year contract.

San Diego goes from one offensive-minded head coach in Norv Turner to another. During the last four seasons, McCoy has drawn praise for morphing his offense to fit the varying skill sets of Kyle Orton, Tim Tebow and Peyton Manning -- and still having great success. Now he'll turn his attention to Philip Rivers, who he's seen up close eight times in the last four years. McCoy, a former World Football League quarterback, was also drawing interest from the Cardinals, Jaguars and Bears.

According to CBS' Jason La Canfora, the Chargers are "nearing a deal" to make Mike McCoy their head coach.

McCoy, who has spent the last four seasons as the Broncos' offensive coordinator, knows the Chargers' personnel well after facing them twice a season. It's a no-brainer to choose Philip Rivers over the woeful quarterback situations in Jacksonville and Arizona. La Canfora says it "looks like" the deal will be finalized today -- meaning Colts offensive coordinator Bruce Arians is still on the market. It also means Cardinals defensive coordinator Ray Horton is in the lead to fill Ken Whisenhunt's old shoes.

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, Broncos OC Mike McCoy is believed to prefer the Chargers' head coaching job over Arizona or Jacksonville's.

As Profootballtalk's Darin Gantt points out, this is hardly surprising considering each team's quarterback situation. However, if McCoy wants the Bolts job, he's going to have to beat out presumed favorite Bruce Arians. The Chargers are also believed to be considering Ken Whisenhunt, Lovie Smith and Bengals OC Jay Gruden.

The Chargers will interview Bengals offensive coordinator Jay Gruden for their head-coaching vacancy on Sunday.

Gruden also has interviews set up with the Eagles on Monday and Jaguars on Tuesday. The National Football Post's Dan Pompei wrote on Sunday morning that new Chargers GM Tom Telesco is "said to hold Gruden in high regard," dating back to last year when Gruden was a top candidate for the Colts' head coach opening while Telesco was in Indy.

The Chargers will interview Broncos offensive coordinator Mike McCoy for their head-coaching vacancy on Monday.

Expect plenty of McCoy news to trickle out this week now that the Broncos have been eliminated from the playoffs. The Bolts have been moving pretty slowly in their search for a head coach, but McCoy joins a list headlined by ex-Cardinals head coach Ken Whisenhunt, ex-Bears head coach Lovie Smith, and Colts OC Bruce Arians.

Ex-Cardinals coach Ken Whisenhunt will reportedly interview for the Chargers' head-coaching vacancy on Saturday.

Whisenhunt will follow ex-Bears coach Lovie Smith, who is interviewing on Friday. The Bolts are also expected to meet with Colts OC Bruce Arians and DC Mike Zimmer, though no interviews have been reported yet. With the Browns out of the picture, Whisenhunt's options are limited.

According to the Union-Tribune San Diego, there is "increasing talk" that 49ers OC Greg Roman is a candidate for the Chargers head-coaching vacancy.

Jaguars GM David Caldwell wasn't Roman's only college teammate to land a job this week. New Chargers GM Tom Telesco also played with Roman at John Carroll University. Ex-Colts GM Chris Polian and Patriots director of player personnel Nick Caserio and OC Josh McDaniels were also on the 1990s JCU teams. Colts OC Bruce Arians is viewed as the favorite for the Chargers coaching job.

Colts OC Bruce Arians confirmed that the Chargers' head-coaching job is more attractive now that former Colts VP of football operations Tom Telesco is the new general manager.

"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?" said Arians. "I had the opportunity to work for 12 weeks as a head coach this year with Ryan Grigson and Tommy Telesco, and it was a fantastic relationship." Arians is also a candidate in Chicago, Cleveland, and Philadelphia.

The Chargers are tentatively scheduled to interview Colts OC Bruce Arians for their head coaching vacancy Monday.

Arians, who appears to be over his inner-ear infection, is scheduled to meet with the Bears Sunday. Then he will head to San Diego, where he was thought to be a favorite for the job even before former Colts executive Tom Telesco was hired as general manager. The Eagles and Browns have also been granted permission to interview him. Arians, 60, has never been an NFL head coach.

Chargers hired Colts VP of football operations Tom Telesco for their general manager position.

Telesco beat out in-house candidate Jimmy Raye. With the Colts since 1998, Telesco was promoted from director of player personnel to VP of football operations last February. His first task in San Diego will be finding a new head coach. Telesco's hiring will only ramp up speculation that the Bolts are eyeing Colts OC Bruce Arians to replace Norval Turner.
Wed, Jan 9, 2013 02:00:00 PM

According to the Union-Tribune San Diego, "several people around the league and inside Chargers Park" have confirmed Colts OC Bruce Arians is the Chargers' top choice to replace Norval Turner.

The Chargers have kept a tight lid on their coaching search, but Arians' name continues to pop up. Among the league's most respected passing gurus, his hiring would be good news for Philip Rivers. The UTSD also reports the Bolts are expected to name either current personnel director Jimmy Raye or Colts VP of football operations Tom Telesco their new GM on Wednesday. Telesco's hiring would obviously bode well for Arians.

The Chargers met with Doug Marrone Saturday evening before the ex-Syracuse coach reached a deal to take the Bills' coach reins.

The Bolts' brass was "extremely impressed" with Marrone, but it wasn't technically an interview. A source categorized the meeting as a chance to get to know Marrone well enough to determine if an interview would be forthcoming. The Chargers are reportedly "ready for a change" with their new head coach, which suggests it won't be a retread this time around. They're expected to make on a decision on Jimmy Raye III or Tom Telesco for the GM position "in a day or two."

In addition to UCLA's Jim Mora, the Chargers are reportedly interested in ex-Browns football czar Mike Holmgren for their head coaching vacancy.

NFL insider Jason LaCanfora reported the news on CBS' pregame show Sunday. Now 64, Holmgren hasn't coached since leaving the Seahawks in 2008, but has made it clear that he's open to a return to the sidelines. The Bolts are also said to be interested in ex-Bears coach Lovie Smith, though Colts OC Bruce Arians has been considered the favorite all along.
Sun, Jan 6, 2013 12:49:00 PM

ESPN's Adam Schefter reported that the Chargers will interview Giants director of college scouting Marc Ross for their vacant GM job on Saturday.

In an earlier report, Schefter confirmed that Ross also interviewed for the Jacksonville GM job on Friday, but is no longer in the running for that position. The Chargers have also interview Colts VP of Football Operations Tom Telesco.
