SAN DIEGO (AP) — Denver Broncos offensive coordinator Mike McCoy has agreed in principle to become head coach of the division rival San Diego Chargers, two people with knowledge of the situation said Tuesday.
The people spoke with The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because McCoy's hiring hasn't been announced.
McCoy replaces Norv Turner, who was fired along with general manager A.J. Smith after the Chargers finished 7-9 and missed the playoffs for the third straight season.
McCoy's hiring comes three days after the top-seeded Broncos were eliminated from the playoffs in a home loss to the Baltimore Ravens.
The Broncos have won consecutive AFC West titles. McCoy tutored quarterbacks Kyle Orton and Tim Tebow in 2011, and Peyton Manning in 2012.
Denver swept the Chargers in 2012, including an epic 35-24 victory at San Diego on Oct. 15 when Manning calmly led them back from a 24-0 halftime deficit.
With the Chargers, McCoy will work with Philip Rivers, who struggled this season, in large part because of a shaky offensive line. Rivers was sacked 49 times and committed 22 turnovers, giving him 47 turnovers in two seasons.
Tom Telesco, hired as Chargers GM last week, led the search for the new coach.
ESPN first reported that McCoy is heading to the Chargers.

Hmmm.... now we have to find an OC that wants Sanchez more than Peyton.

This makes me think that all of the remaining "needy" teams are waiting for their potential FO-replacements to finish their current run in the playoffs before making any hiring decisions.

read: Tom Gamble will be our GM.

Is Gamble staying behind to get as many of the Niners notes for us here?

Seems like a good hire in name. The Rivers is probably smiling over no more Turner.

But, but, but Turner is an offensive genius. At least he was 20 years ago when he had Aikman, Smith and Irvin.

Turner is a fine offensive coach. It's giving him the HCing job that's shown to be a bad idea.

This.


His offenses were good in Dallas and SD (before this year), but he didn't do much good as OC in SD, SF or Miami.
