San Diego Chargers Fire Head Coach Mike McCoy


The Chargers hired McCoy after four seasons as the Denver Broncos offensive coordinator, and had led the Bolts to a playoff berth in his first season in San Diego with a 9-7 record.

"The decision to dismiss Mike was made in the best interests of our franchise", Chargers president Dean Spanos said in a statement. After a 2-14 season, 49ers coach Chip Kelly is also expected to be swept out in a bid to change the club's fortunes.

With their loss to the Chiefs, the Chargers finished the 2016 season with a 5-11 record. The team's disappointing performance this season has not come close to their potential and fell short of the standards that the organization sought to impose throughout the franchise.

Miami Dolphins week 17 LIVE game chat
Patriots fans were having flashbacks to Week 2, when the Patriots almost wasted a 31-3 lead and had to hang on for a 31-24 win. It was expected that the Patriots would win in Miami , though the Dolphins are in the playoffs for the first time since 2008.

McCoy won't be the only coach to get the hatchet, but other than the in-season firings like Jeff Fisher and Rex Ryan, he was the first. San Diego's loss to the Chiefs on Sunday marked their 13th loss in 14 games against AFC West opponents, with their only divisional win in the past two years coming on October 13 against Denver.

General manager Tom Telesco, who had been speculated as being in McCoy's corner, was quoted in the release as saying:"I want to thank Mike for his tireless work and commitment to this organization". Further humiliation came on December 24, when the Chargers handed the 1-15 Cleveland Browns their only win of the season. "He instilled a culture of work ethic and togetherness we can build on for years to come". The Chargers are rumored to be relocating to Los Angeles for the 2017 season. What will a move to Los Angeles mean for Rivers' future?
