It will be the first Latino head coach hired since Tom Flores in 1994 with Seattle

i'm sure it means a lot to him, and given his resume, I'm thankful we have a reputable coach willing to come on board given this franchise hasn't been the greatest place to be in recent history

Interesting stat.

But if Ron gets hired, does that mean we will also quickly try to fill the assistant coach positions, or are we likely to take our time with those guys?

I would take some time with the coordinators. We got to evaluate people possible and make sure we don't screw up like we did with davidson.

Gantt thinks Hurney already has an OC in mind.

it may take some time.

The Chargers are not expected to allow any of their assistants to leave with Rivera. All of the Chargers' coaches except special teams coordinator Steve Crosby, who was let go last week, agreed to extensions last offseason.

I know he's not the first Hispanic person to do it, but would he be the first NFL head coach from Puerto Rico?

he's not from Puerto Rico, he's from California.

regardless, he was in fact the very first player with Puerto Rican heritage, so i would guess the same is true in coaching.

Wouldn't it be a promotion for some of those guys at least? Chargers can't block it unless it's lateral from what I understand.

I don't care where is is from as long as he wins.

It'll probably be important to him. Which gives an extra emotional incentive not to f*ck up.

This is correct, they can block lateral moves, but not promotions.

i really hope this is just some early jokes and then people get over it. it would be pretty humiliating to be known as the team whose fan base freaks out over this.
