Chargers Could Be Interested in Jim Mora

Jim Mora’s name is coming up again around town. He was recently here when his Bruins were whipped in the Holiday Bowl. Reporters were asking him then about his interest in the Chargers job and responded with, “I’m not going to talk about the Chargers. The Chargers have a head coach who’s a very good friend of mine. I’m not going to disrespect him by by saying anything about that job.”

Can we ask him about the job again? Now Mora is mentioned by Kevin Acee about the possible job opening. Acee says there could be interest from the Chargers.

Mora would be able to keep John Pagano as the defensive coordinator and also could bring in Noel Mazzone as the offensive coordinator. Mazzone was the offensive coordinator with Philip Rivers for a season at NC State.

Mora has a house in town, married his wife in Point Loma and started his NFL career with the Chargers. He worked with the team when Don Coryell was the head coach.

He has NFL head coaching experience, which the Chargers brass has been looking for, with the Atlanta Falcons and Seattle Seahawks. He has a 31-33 career record and only has 1 winning season under his belt.

Jim Mora Jr? Don’t know if that will make the fans happy. Don’t know if he will be able to win ballgames. He will be able to yell and jump on the sideline though. I would want him to bring a better offensive coordinator with him. I don’t care if Mazzone worked with Phil in college.
