I guess there was some doubt about this, but we can definitely put that to rest now. The Chargers have made it official that they will be keeping John Pagano around to coach the defense for the second straight season, per Michael Gehlken. We needed to keep some sort of consistency on the coaching staff. Head Coach Mike McCoy had told Dean Spanos in the interview that he wanted to keep Pagano around to run the defense.
Pagano and the defense gained steam as the season progressed last year. Hopefully he can keep that momentum rolling into the next season and have his guys playing to a top level.
Mike McCoy, Ken Whisenhunt, John Pagano – our fearless leaders.
Other coaches on the defensive side of the ball – Don Johnson, Joe Barry and Greg Williams – will be retained as well, per Bill Johnston.
