Morning Dump: San Diego Chargers News Around the Web


Look what has returned! Sorry I wasn’t able to get the Morning Dump out to you all for the last couple of months, but it is back in full force, just in time for the offseason.

It is an important event for every team, but for the Chargers this season, it holds even more intrigue.  For the first time, new General Manager Tom Telesco and Head Coach Mike McCoy will work side-by-side to scout some of the top talent coming out of college. Thus, the 2013 Senior Bowl provides the first glimpse of how the new era in Chargers history will work.

According to Michael Gehlken of the San Diego Union-Tribune, the Chargers will not retain strength and conditioning coach Jeff Hurd and assistant strength coach Vernon Stephens.

Word came out yesterday that the team has replaced the recently-departed (he quit, he didn’t die) Rich Bisaccia with former Arizona Cardinals’ Special Teams Coach Kevin Spencer. This is another case of Mike McCoy, who doesn’t have many ties that aren’t signed to contracts with the Denver Broncos, leaning on the ties of his Offensive Coordinator (Ken Whisenhunt) to fill some key roles (at least temporarily).

The Chargers have hired former NFL quarterback Frank Reich (pronounced “Rike”) as the team’s new quarterbacks coach, Head Coach Mike McCoy announced today.

MOBILE, Ala. — Coming to the annual NFL festival known as the Senior Bowl was something of a mercy mission this year. I needed to try to save Jacques Cesaire’s life, his family, his health.

First-year coach Mike McCoy is expected to announce changes throughout the week. Among them, Hal Hunter, the team’s offensive line coach who also carried the title of coordinator in 2012, will not be retained under the new regime.
