Morning Dump

Wednesday. Are we there yet?!

The Bears are looking to replace the fired Jerry Angelo. They have also either talked to or plan to talk to New England Patriots director of pro personnel Jason Licht, Kansas City director of college scouting Phil Emery and New York Giants director of college scouting Marc Ross.

Former CSU football coach Steve Fairchild has been hired as an assistant coach by his hometown NFL team, the San Diego Chargers.

The San Diego Chargers announced they have promoted offensive line coach Hal Hunter to offensive coordinator. He will still coach the offensive line. His promotion had been expected since former offensive coordinator Clarence Shelmon decided not to coach in 2012.

Now that a couple of weeks have passed, and the scab has (hopefully) healed over some, I want to revisit why Dean Spanos may have made the correct call to retain Norv Turner.

Ticket holders were encouraged to ask Spanos questions, but before fans could take a crack at the Chargers’ CEO, he answered the one question everyone wanted to know about retaining Head coach Norv Turner and GM.

A Chargers player got quite a reaction on Twitter last night when he sent out a tweet while watching the Lakers game.
