I don't know about one and done 26. SD is a pretty attractive place to coach and to live. If he has success, he may actually be more inclined to stay. It has been a long time since he was a part of a winning team (one playoff appearance in AZ). If this thing gets turned around quickly, and the Chargers are contending with Peyton and the Broncos for the AFC West title (or at least get a WC berth) next season, then I think he actually sticks around. Sure, he will be a HC for someone again, but I really don't think the guy leaves after one campaign in SD.
Chad Grimm will join offensive coordinator Ken Whisenhunt, quarterbacks coach Frank Reich and special teams coach Kevin Spencer on the San Diego staff after coaching in Arizona last season. Grimm, who is the son of Hall of Famer and former Cardinals assistant Russ Grimm, will be the defensive quality control coach for the Chargers in 2013.
Andrew Dees was named the team’s assistant offensive line coach, Craig Aukerman will assist with Spencer’s special teams units and Nick Sirianni will be the offensive quality control coach. Sirianni was the wide receivers coach in Kansas City in 2012, Dees assisted Chargers offensive line coach Joe D’Alessandris in Buffalo and Aukerman coached in Jacksonville.
The team also announced that Byron Storer will remain with the team as an assistant linebackers coach. Storer helped with the special teams on Norv Turner’s final staff and served a similar role in Tampa for two years before coming to the Chargers.
Dean surprised me by actually hiring a sought after guy.You and me both, santaclara. Hoepfully it goes as well as we're all hoping.
While I believe Whisenhunt hasn't really had any success without Haley, I am willing to give him a shot.Well, I guess you could also say this saying goes both ways. Haley hasn't shown anything since he left AZ. You know why? Simple. No Kurt Warner. He made Haley. Now he ends up on the Steelers and they're still not happy up there with his play calling (the players).
Neither one will do squat unless they rebuild the offensive line.Maybe. Maybe not. Maybe all they need is some different coaching or a different scheme, or a different strength and conditioning program to turn things around. We're going to have at least two of the three, and probably all three, so that actually remains to be seen. On that note, we do need a couple of players one way or the other.
Haley has done nothing since leaving AZ
