Chargers Name McCoy as Head Coach

The San Diego Chargers have beaten a number of other NFL teams by securing the services of Mike McCoy as their new head coach, filling the position left by Norv Turner at the end of the regular season.

While some people betting NFL have seen this move as a risk, McCoy has proven himself during his 13 years coaching in the NFL. McCoy will now be tasked with turning around the fortunes of a team that killed any hopes of reaching the postseason when they picked up only one victory in eight games during the all-important mid-point of the year.

Turner and general manager, AJ Smith, paid the price following San Diego’s third straight season without reaching the play-offs, both being shown the door after another disappointing year for the Chargers, and one that saw the fans begin to vocalise their displeasure at what they were seeing.

McCoy arrives in San Diego following three years spent with the Denver Broncos, first as quarterback coach and then offensive coordinator. The 40-year old had been linked with a number of other NFL teams but admitted he was won over by the tradition of the franchise, as well as the prospect of having the Qualcomm Stadium as his new home field.

“The Chargers have great tradition and great people. The great thing is it’s a family run business.  I’m big into family.  There’s an open door policy for everyone to feel welcome and open to come enjoy the environment that we’re all in this together,” McCoy told the NFL betting news.

“It’s a great place to play. There’s a lot of energy and a lot of excitement.  It’s a great atmosphere on game day.”
