By Ernie Padaon

According to Christopher Smith, the Chargers have officially name John Pagano the new defensive coordinator for the team. UCLA better start looking for a different candidate for their defensive coordinator job.

Pagano on his vision for the defense: fundamentally sound, good tackling, solid coverage downfield. Wants it to help team win.

Hopefully Pagano can bring an aggressive defense and can force turnovers. He is a favorite in the locker room and the players wanted him to be named the defensive coordinator last year. Let’s see what he can do!
