Chargers keeping Mike McCoy amid LA talks, 'enthused' by end of season
The Chargers will keep head coach Mike McCoy, sources told CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason La Canfora.
The Chargers will retain coach Mike McCoy for 2016, sources told CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason La Canfora Monday.
La Canfora reports the Chargers front office and upper management "strongly considered" making a chance at the coaching position but decided to retain McCoy and his staff.
The Chargers management was "enthused" by the way the Chargers finished and impressed with McCoy's ability to keep the team competitive despite being pummelled with injuries (Keenan Allen was lost along with half of Philip Rivers' offensive line).
John Spanos issued a statement Monday afternoon expressing the "utmost confidence" in the Chargers leadership while noting they would make changes as needed.
I have the utmost confidence in our leadership. Tom Telesco, Mike McCoy, and I have already begun evaluating every aspect of the team to take the essential steps to put a winning product back on the field. We will waste no time in making the necessary changes.
The other issue for the Bolts? Los Angeles.
La Canfora reports "ownership is focused on a move to LA" and will be in meetings this coming week relating to a potential relocation.
It's entirely possible McCoy is forced to make staff changes. Don't be surprised if John Pagano, long-time defensive coach, is on the hot seat once things shake out.
