MCCOY IS THE CHARGERS’ NEW HC
Mon, 21 Jan 2013 01:30 AM EST

Mike McCoy’s interview with San Diego went so well that both sides felt he was a perfect fit to become the San Diego Chargers’ new coach.

McCoy had one specific thing to do, though, before accepting the Chargers’ offer, so it was a good thing Chargers president Dean Spanos’ private plane was at his disposal.

“There was no doubt in my mind when I got back on that plane to go back home,” related McCoy, the former Broncos offensive coordinator who was introduced as Chargers’ new coach.

McCoy replaces Norv Turner, who was fired together with GM A.J. Smith after the Chargers finished 7-9 and missed the playoffs for the 3rd straight season.

The move comes 3 days after the top-seeded Denver Broncos were eliminated from the playoffs in a double-overtime home loss to the Ravens.

The 40-year-old McCoy is the same age as Tom Telesco, who was employed as GM last week. He interviewed after the Chargers already had talked to Seattle Seahawks defensive coordinator Gus Bradley, fired head coaches Lovie Smith and Ken Whisenhunt, and Cincinnati Bengals offensive coordinator Jay Gruden.

“Once he came in and when we saw how good he was, we just felt we had to have him now,” Telesco said of McCoy. “We had to get it done or we’d lose him.”

“He was polished, prepared, had great questions, which I believe is big, too, that he had a lot of questions for us. It’s a partnership between the General Manager and the head coach, through and through. We spend more time with one another during the season than we do with our own family, so it’s got to be a tight relationship. When he came in, after a little bit of time, you could tell he was the right guy for us. We went after him hard.”

McCoy inherits a team that hasn’t won a playoff game since after the 2008 season.

He thanked all the coaches and players he’s worked with over the years for helping him get to this point. He further said he knew just a few minutes into his interview that San Diego was the right place.

The Denver Broncos have won consecutive AFC West titles. McCoy tutored quarterbacks Kyle Orton and Tim Tebow in 2011, and had Peyton Manning behind center in 2012. Basketball spreads

“I think he’s going to be a great coach, very detail-oriented, knows the game, relates with players very well,” Broncos wide receiver Brandon Stokley said.

With the Chargers, McCoy will work with Philip Rivers, who struggled this season largely as he was under siege behind a shaky offensive line. Rivers was sacked 49 times and committed 22 turnovers, giving him 47 turnovers in 2 seasons.

McCoy was a walk-on quarterback at Long Beach State under Coach George Allen. After the San Francisco dropped football, he moved to Utah. He signed with the Broncos as a free agent and spent his newbie season on Green Bay’s practice squad. He had stops in NFL Europe and with San Francisco, Philadelphia and in the CFL. He began his pro coaching career with Carolina Panthers before moving to the Denver Broncos in 2009.
