  • Chargers Fire Schottenheimer

    Sources: Chargers head coach Schottenheimer fired
    ESPN.com news services

    Sources close to Marty Schottenheimer and the San Diego Chargers said the coach was fired by the team Monday, ESPN's Chris Mortensen reported.

    Schottenheimer and Chargers general manager A.J. Smith have been having disagreements over staffing after losing a number of assistants. Dean Spanos, the team president, told Schottenheimer on Monday that it wasn't going to work between him and Smith.

    Three days after the Chargers melted down in a stunning 24-21 playoff loss to New England, Spanos decided that bringing Schottenheimer back for the final year of his contract gave San Diego its best chance to win.

    Schottenheimer, though, declined the team's offer of a one-year extension for 2008 worth $4.5 million, with a $1 million buyout.

    "Right now, I wasn't comfortable accepting it," Schottenheimer told the Associated Press shortly after the season. He would have earned more than $3 million in 2007.

    With a regular-season record of 200-126-1 with Cleveland, Kansas City, Washington and San Diego, Schottenheimer is the most successful coach never to have reached the Super Bowl.

    Could be a good move depending on who replaces him.

          I don't know a lot about available coaches, but it seems like a stupid ass move because 1) he led them to a 14-2 record (or whatever they were) and 2) other teams have been hiring coaches already for the past month. Stupid ass move, they should get rid of A.J. Smith instead

              I don't agree with the move. It seems ridiculous to me to fire a coach after a 14-2 year, regardless of the playoff disappointment.

                I cant believe this, a 14-2 season and a 3 pt loss in the playoffs and he gets fired? All three of the games they lost were by a field goal, so it's not like they ever played terrible. They better get a hell of a replacement, cause they are taking a big risk by startin with a new head coach.

                  Good. I don't care what their season record is. With the talent on that team, you have to win a playoff game. Marty could not get it done.

                    This might be worse than the Marlins firing Girardi after he won coach of the year. What if every coach who lost to the Patriots in the playoffs was fired?

                            The Marlins fired him before he won the award.

                              This is like if the Colts had fired Tony Dungy after last years playoffs loss. You see how not firing him worked out for them. This looks like a dumb move, But we gotta wait to see who replaces him.
