I am not sure why Arizona let him go to San Diego first, if this was your number one target you do everything in your control to get this guy to your facility and get him signed. Now another avenue to travel and not liking it!

I would guess it was more McCoy's call as he prefered the San Diego job over Arizona.

Maybe we should ask Whisenhunt if he'd be willing to return.

This morning 620AM the Mike and Mike show host indicated the reason that McCoy chose the Chargers over the Cardinals is that the Chargers have a proven QB and the Cardinals do not.

The chances the Cards get a quality QB seems to slim to none this coming year.
The risk of failure is great, but the risk of not making the necessary changes to improve ones self will surely spell disaster!

Thanks for sharing this Cowboy! That's interesting. Didn't say the indication had to do with the OL as so many of us here have stressed as a priority.......but the QB position. Hmmm......

Reddog,


Your are correct, there was no mention made about the O-line from the guest.

I think McCoy wants to be a contender next season and he believes he can in San Diego and not with Cardinals obismal offense and no real QB option.

The Cards are too much of a project for most coaches that want to get off to a fast start. I am talking on offense, just look at the numbers.....not alot there to attract attention too other than Fitz. Everyone else is just mediocre.

Maybe Lovie Smith will come aboard and turn things around. noidea

RE: Chargers to hire Mike McCoy 


I'd prefer Brian Billick over Lovie Smith. Billick is an offensive mind, has been out of coaching for a while, and should be recharged and ready to go. Now, Billick is probably waiting for a better opportunity, but who knows, he was originally a West Coast guy. And there would be much less pressure in Arizona, than say Philadelphia.

1978
Brigham Young (graduate assistant)

1981-1985
San Diego State (tight ends coach)

1986-1988
Utah State (offensive coordinator)

1989-1991
Stanford (assistant head coach and tight ends coach)

1992-1993
Minnesota Vikings (tight ends coach)

1994-1998
Minnesota Vikings (offensive coordinator)

1999-2007
Baltimore Ravens (head coach)

Billick would definately work. He is well respected.

He recently interviewed with Philly, so he must be ready.

My guess is the "secret consideration" is Haley.. apparently he and his agent have been shooting down rumors of interviewing w/ the Cards b/c he's afraid he'll get fired..
