That is good for he Chargers IMO. Mora has been great at UCLA but he totally fugged up the Atlanta Falcons. He might be one of those guys who is better suited for college.


Replacing a thrice failed retread with a twice failed retread wasn't my most favorite idea

Fwiw Jason laCanfora had a interview on the radio and says that he talked to his would be coaching staff. His ideal job was to come to Carolina Panthers but he pretty much wanted a lot of control

who? i mean who was lacanfora talking about? himself?

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.

Browns OC Brad Childress is in KC today, where he could be hired as either OC or as an advisor to new Chiefs head coach Andy Reid.

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.

Regarding Gruden, I wasn't even interested in him as just a head coach. Sure as heck wouldn't be interested in him with total control of the team.

And Gruden thinks he'd deserve total control after taking the Bucs (with Dungy's players and Monte Kiffin as DC) from the Super Bowl through mediocrity to the point where his players told the team they refused to play if the team kept Gruden in charge. That's almost beyond a huge ego. That's almost a disconnect with reality.

Clearly, this is a guy who fervently believes his own hype.

With how attractive Carolina's job was with no GM in place, Rivera needs to deliver consistent playoff's and a Super Bowl win in the next couple of years. Otherwise keeping Rivera was a mistake. This isn't about Gruden, Rivera or Kelly. Just the job being attractive to head coaches in general. Carolina would've been able to get what ever HC they wanted to have.

i don't care about gruden, but what is a big deal was him saying that the panthers was the only HC gig he was interested in. i just wonder how many other top coaching prospects out there would be wanting it as well and how many of them would be better at getting this team in the playoffs than what rivera has managed to do.
