Chargers fire head coach Mike McCoy

The San Diego Chargers made a move that didn’t surprise many as they fired head coach Mike McCoy after 4 seasons with the team. It’s difficult to completely blame McCoy for the 5-11 season that the Chargers had in 2016 as they dealt with numerous injuries. However, the team’s inability to close out games reflected the poor coaching of McCoy. Also, the team just couldn’t seem to get out of their own way as they had too many turnovers on offense. The Chargers made the playoffs in their first season with McCoy in 2013 and they beat the Bengals in the playoffs that year before losing to the Broncos in the divisional round. It has been a struggle in the 3 years since then for San Diego as they haven’t made the playoffs since 2013 despite having a pretty good roster. This was the right move for the Chargers because their offense hasn’t been as good as expected under McCoy despite McCoy being an offensive-minded head coach. San Diego still has plenty of talent especially on offense with quarterback Phillip Rivers and star running back Melvin Gordon. McCoy is a good offensive coordinator probably, but he just wasn’t very successful with the Chargers as he went 27-37 in 4 seasons.
