January 4, 2016 (San Diego) - Happy New Year, San Diego.
Forget the efforts by Dean Spanos to move the team to Los Angeles for a minute.  In a span of two weeks, the Chargers have made more bad decisions than most of us have made in our entire lives.  As if the decision to prevent safety Eric Weddle from traveling with the team to Denver to take on the Broncos on Sunday wasn't bad enough, KUSI is now reporting that Mike McCoy will stay on as head coach, despite his pitiful 4-12 record in 2015 and finishing last in the AFC West by three games.
General manager Tom Telesco will remain.  In a statement released by the Chargers' website, President of Football Operations John Spanos wrote, "Tom Telesco, Mike McCoy, and I have already begun evaluating every aspect of the team to take the essential steps to put a winning product back on the field. We will waste no time in making the necessary changes.  I firmly believe the decisions made today and moving forward will get us back on track in 2016."
One may have their doubts about that, Mr. Spanos.
