The Union-Tribune San Diego's Kevin Acee believes the Chargers should fire coach Mike McCoy.
Now 23-29 as Bolts coach, McCoy's team has suffered a series of hard-to-believe collapses over the season's first four games. Each of the 1-3 Chargers' losses have come after the team led in the fourth quarter, with two of the meltdowns coughing up 13-point leads. No other team in the league has surrendered a 13-point fourth quarter lead this season. All the choking has come on the heels of a 2015 that featured one stupefying loss after another. McCoy appears poised to keep his job for Week 5, but his seat is white hot. Oct 3 - 2:38 PM

The Chargers are reportedly open to trading the No. 3 overall pick.

Teams have been slightly gunshy about trading up since Washington's RG3 debacle a few years ago, but it shouldn't be too hard for the Bolts to drum up interest. No. 3 would be a good spot for a quarterback-needy team to move up for Carson Wentz or Jared Goff. If the Chargers stay put, they should be eyeing offensive linemen and linemen, or perhaps Florida State DB Jalen Ramsey.

Chargers signed coach Mike McCoy to a one-year extension.

That puts him under contract through 2017. A one-year extension isn't a massive vote of confidence but now McCoy has at least two more years to right the ship. Of course, injuries were a huge reason the Chargers fell flat in 2015. With the team possibly headed to Los Angeles next season, it will be good for the Bolts to have some stability at the head coaching position. The Chargers axed six assistant coaches earlier this week including offensive coordinator Frank Reich.

The San Diego Union-Tribune reports the Chargers have discussed coach Mike McCoy calling the offensive plays in 2016.

McCoy made his name as the Broncos' offensive coordinator, but he has been hesitant to take on the play-calling role in San Diego. Entering what could be a make-or-break year, McCoy could have a change of heart. Former OC Ken Whisenhunt would certainly handle play calling if he returns to his old post, but McCoy would likely take on the role if a less experienced offensive coordinator is brought in.

The Chargers have informed coach Mike McCoy he'll be retained for a fourth season.

However, the Union-Tribune San Diego reports "substantial changes" are coming to McCoy's staff as early as Monday. McCoy is just 22-25 in three years on the job, but dealt with a biblical wave of injuries in 2015. He was never clearly the problem. With the Chargers' relocation drama looming, owner Dean Spanos has bigger fish to fry. McCoy could get the ship righted in 2016.

Chargers coach Mike McCoy will hold a press conference Monday afternoon.

Fired coaches do not usually address the media, so this conference likely means McCoy has kept his job. With the Chargers hoping to move to Los Angeles this offseason, ownership likely does not want to deal with the headache of a coaching search. McCoy is 22-26 in three seasons with the Chargers, but he led the team to back-to-back winning seasons before this year. Even if McCoy is safe, he will likely be asked to make changes to his coaching staff.
Jan 4 - 11:41 AM

The San Diego Union-Tribune reports the Chargers are expected to retain Mike McCoy.

It conflicts with a FOX Sports report that McCoy will be fired next week. McCoy has strong ties to GM Tom Telesco/president John Spanos and reportedly has the support of Chargers decision-makers. It's still far from a given he keeps his job, but injuries and personnel issues played a bigger role in San Diego's struggles. The Chargers are likely to make staff changes even if McCoy stays.
Jan 2 - 7:10 PM

FOXSports’ Alex Marvez reports Chargers HC Mike McCoy is expected to be fired.

The report cites multiple league sources. The Chargers were hit hard with injuries this year, but have been unwatchable over the last month. An offense-minded coach, McCoy’s biggest fails have come in the run game, where the Chargers rank dead-last in the NFL. McCoy had two nine-win seasons before this year’s meltdown, but it's not expected to be enough to keep his job. San Diego should also move on from DC John Pagano.
Jan 2 - 5:12 PM

The San Diego Union-Tribune's Kevin Acee reports Mike McCoy will be asked to make changes to his staff on both sides of the ball if he is retained as Chargers head coach.

After another listless loss to the Broncos Sunday, it is far from a given McCoy keeps his job another year, but the fate of some of his staff may already be sealed. San Diego has been ravaged by injuries two years in a row, but they have also not played up to their potential on both sides of the ball. With a franchise quarterback who is beginning to reach the twilight of his career, the Chargers cannot afford to waste another season.
