Steve Mariucci: I Would Never Comment On A Coaching Job Where There’s A Coach In Place


Steve Mariucci commented on the report from Peter King that said Mariucci would be interested in the possible vacant coaching position with the San Diego Chargers:

“I would never comment on a coaching job where there’s a coach in place, and the coach down there in San Diego happened to be a very good friend of mine, Norv Turner,” Mariucci said on NFL Network. “There’s no way I would ever discuss this right now, I don’t know where it comes from. Let’s just stop the nonsense, OK? Please.”

It’s coach’s unwritten law that they are not supposed to speak about a position that is not vacant. Or they are not supposed to let that information get released to the public. I am sure former coaches speak all the time about certain jobs they think they could do better at. We have a Pro Bowl quarterback in place and a defense that has some good young pieces, who doesn’t think they can do better than Norv?

Does Mariucci want the job? Maybe. We should find out pretty soon.
