As the Chargers get ready for this week’s Monday night matchup with da Bears, perhaps the most interesting figure in the game will be the man calling the signals for da Bears defense – Vic Fangio. The game itself has little significance for the Chargers. The Bolts would need to win out to make the playoffs and this team is in no shape to do that. With a defense who gives out big plays like candy on Halloween and an offense who lost their best WR and can not run the ball, there is little hope for running the table.

So as the 2-6 Chargers face off against the 2-5 Bears, I will be scouting for a new Head Coach for 2016.
Vic Fangio has currently guided the Bears defense to 9th in the league. He was with Jim Harbaugh in San Francisco and credited with turning around the 49ers defense which produced a league leading 35 turnovers in 2011. He also was defensive coordinator for the Carolina Panthers (1995–98), Indianapolis Colts (1999-01), and the Houston Texans (2002–05).
He was with the Panthers in 96 when they went to the conference finals. He saw two playoff appearances in his time with the Colts. And with the 49ers his team made it to the Super Bowl once and the Conference Championship twice.

Could Vic Fangio be the Chargers head man at the beginning of 2016?
If not Vic, who do you think it might be?
