The first move that Mike McCoy and the new regime that I am not too keen on. It had to happen at some point. The San Diego Chargers will not be bringing back Charlie Joiner to be the wide receivers coach next season, per Michael Gehlken. Joiner’s contract expired at the end of the year and the team will look in a different direction. Instead, McCoy will look to bring on some personnel that he is more familiar with. Or they will bring on more personnel from the Cardinals.
The Chargers also will not bring back “offensive coordinator” Hal Hunter. Hunter was also in charge of the offensive line. Former Cardinals and Steelers O-Line coach Russ Grimm is a possibility to take over as the new O-Line coach.
There are going to be new faces on that offensive coaching staff. Mike McCoy deserves a chance to bring in his own guys. I wish Joiner was part of the crew, but it looks like we will be looking in a different direction.
