When the San Diego Chargers decided to fire Norv Turner, the concern is whether their next head coach will appease quarterback Philip Rivers. Now that Mike McCoy is their new coach, it should make Rivers very happy.
Looking at McCoy's work in four years as the Denver Broncos' offensive coordinator and the fact it went to another level with Peyton Manning as his starting quarterback, it was evident McCoy would be elevated to a first-time head coach for some team in 2013.
The Chargers are that fortunate team, with the added bonus of stealing someone from the staff of the reigning AFC West champions. McCoy interviewed with Arizona, Chicago and Philadelphia, but it's hard to ignore the fact that San Diego offered the most settled quarterback situation and best offensive opportunity.
