    ESPN is reporting that Ted Cotrell will likely be hired as the DC. This is who A.J Smith wanted Shot to hire as his DC in the first place.

    I hope that this once again sheds some light on how Singletary is viewed as a head coaching candidate. As a Bears fan even I can objectively say that there is little to his resume to deserve a head coaching position. He gets interviews based out of respect and name recognition (and being black probably doesn't hurt either).

      The fact that he previously worked as an offensive coordinator in San Diego doesn't hurt either. People that are expecting the Norv Turner as head coach in Oakland will be sorely dissapointed. The differences between San Diego and Oakland couldn't be more stark.

          I don't think Smith "blamed" Marty. He just didn't want to work with him any further. I can understand Smith's position. If you're the GM you want a coach that shares the same organizational philosophy with you and somebody that you feel like you can work with. It's a move that eventually would have to be made.

          That being said you are correct. Smith now has his guy, and if the Chargers don't make serious inroads in the playoffs in the next few years (one year is unrealistic to have his head on pike) then he will face some serious heat and rightfully so.

              Well this sucks. I don't know what to think. He better turn around his head coaching carrer or he's gone next year.

                Sucks to be a 49ers and Chargers fan. Although he does run a similar offense to what SD had before.

                  If we don't make the playoffs next year he should be fired

                      He probably won't be , but if we if we don't make the playoffs next year he should be fired. Our team is set up to win now.

                        That team is so stacked its scary, so if Chargers go 8-8 or 9-7 with all that talent and fail to make the playoffs, Than what?

                          Actually he created our offense, when he was our OC in 2001. I'm not happy about this signing; AJ just hired whoever wouldn't care that he brought in his old Buffalo buddy Ted Cottrell. It's an ego move.

                          Well, here's hoping that Norv won't get in the way of all the talent on this team.

                            He should hide in a corner cause all the fans are gonna beat on him.

                              It would be really sad to see this team with all this talent lose 5-6 games with a bad HC. He should be gone after one season if this team loses 5-6 games, and doesn't make the super bowl. Also, I'm wondering how this affects the growth of Alex Smith, who has a new OC for the first 3 years(?) of his career. He will have to learn a new offense all over again.

                                This is a bad move for the Chargers and Turner. Hes just a bad head coach plain and simple. Hes much better as a cordinator.
