Breaking News: San Diego Chargers Fire Ted Cottrell

Brian SmithCorrespondent IOctober 28, 2008

The San Diego Chargers have finally shown the door to defensive coordinator Ted Cottrell. Ron Rivera will assume the duties of the defensive coordinator and hopefully with better success.

The Chargers, at 3-5, felt that now was the time to make the change with the bye week. Ron Rivera came over from the Chicago Bears before the start of the 2007 season and was the linebackers coach.

So, Chargers' fans, rejoice and here's to a successful second half of the season.
