Chargers hiring Tim Telesco as GM.

That means all jobs where the GM can pick their coach have been filled. The "why would someone want to come here without control" excuse is now invalid.

Gruden wanted to come to Carolina, but wanted full control and the ability to pick his own GM.

How is that any different than a GM picking their own coach?

NFL Network's La Canfora just reported that he spoke with representatives of John Gruden and his would-be coaching staff, and he was holding out for the Carolina Panthers job. Said he already developed a Chip Kelly type playbook for the Panthers offense. Wanted to choose his own GM.

Yet we keep Rivera.....what a joke.

Not who I want but it was still interesting

This > The Drive@thedrivenc

LaCanfora on John Gruden: "People told me that the one coaching job that would have really gotten him excited was Carolina."

wow wow wow.

with a kelly style playbook to boot.

i wonder if kelly had his eyes on here as well.

i wonder how attractive this team would be to other potential HCs if we decided that losing wasn't good enough for rivera to keep his job.

rivera better get us in the playoffs and find a way to deliver more than one winning season in a row. if he can't, the FO is holding this team back.

Those guys will still be there after we fire Rivera after 8 games next season ;). Gruden may not get to choose his GM so maybe he would be off the table (although I doubt it), but Chip Kelly looks like he will still be an option.

Although, I would be lying if I said it isn't a little frustrating that we didn't take advantage of our job being so desirous right now.
