Now that the Chargers have hired their general manager, they will shift their focus to finding their next head coach. President Dean Spanos said the team will narrow their list of candidates down to approximately five or six candidates and would like to name the next head coach within a week or so.
The candidate list could grow by a few with the addition of Tom Telesco to the hiring committee, and the timeline could be extended if the Chargers are unable to interview some of their top candidates until after their teams are eliminated from the playoffs.
In football and in life, it’s not always about what you know, but who you know. Determining who might be a potential candidate in San Diego is a bit like connecting the dots. That doesn’t mean an outside candidate couldn’t impress the committee or that the search is a sham, it only serves as a guide to coaches that could be considered for the job.
Just who might be on San Diego’s list of candidates? Glad you asked…
