    As the Chargers LB coach.

    Pretty bad for him considering he was a potential HC this offseason. He'll be gone in a year.

      So he gets fired and then ends up with an even lower and more meaningless job as LB's coach, that sucks for him. But, I bet by this time next year he'll be a HC.

          not a bad move on his part though, he gets the 3 - 4 experience, and he gets to live in sunny cali as oppose to windy /cold chitown

          thanks to steel man for the fresh sig

              It's a step down, but make sure to read this part.

              For Rivera, the idea of joining the Chargers was another way to improve his stock for a future head coaching job. Rivera was defensive coordinator of a Super Bowl team, but he was pigeonholed in some ways. He was considered a 4-3 defensive specialist and so many of the opening this year wanted coaches with 3-4 experience.
              Not a bad spot to get experience in. He should pretty much have his pick for a HC next year.

                He'll also learn under Norv Turner, continue to work with one of the best LB's playing in Shawne Merriman, receives experience in the 3-4. All of those things help pad his resume. Shrewd move on his part.

                  Is a decent move. He can learn the 3-4 and bolt next year to be a HC. He won't be considered a cover-2 only guy which really hurt his chances to be a HC this year because a lot of the teams that needed a HC ran the 3-4 and had too much invested in the D to change schemes.

                    That really sucks for him, from the DC of the Bears to a LB coach.

                      Ouch. Does he at least get the Assistant HC tag?

                        If he gets the assistant head coach job as well, this is an excellent move, IMO. He will now know both the 3-4 and Cover 2, the two most popular D's, he will get a little HC experience as their assistant HC, and he will learn about offensive strategy as well, as he is going to a high powered offensive team.

                            Wow. He took a downgrade. Not even a lateral move.


                            The problem arises when people use statistics like a drunk uses a lamp post: for support instead of illumination.

                            If luck is where preparation meets opportunity, then clutch is where failure meets luck.

                              You guys are just looking at the job title... look at what it will do for his resume.
