NFL  > General NFL  > Chargers Hire Colts' Tom Telesco as GM
January 9, 2013, 03:06 PM
The beginning of a new era. Telesco is former VP of Football Operations for the Colts. I like the move, but time will tell. Much work to be done in San Diego.

Now on to the coaching decision. Add Arians and it might be a nice little package deal? Hope they don't hire Mora.

I'm surprised they didn't bring up Jimmy Raye but Telesco should be a good fit, as you said time will tell. Arians seems to be a hot candidate for several teams maybe Telesco gives the Chargers a leg up at Arians?

Should be a big improvement over the last guy!!!

Either Arians or Mora would be a good hire.

Mora was successful at UCLA this year. He should stay there. New football facility being built, great recruiting class, they love him--he belongs there.

I believe Mora has grown as a coach since his time at Atlanta and Seattle. Pete Carroll grew as a head coach while at USC and look at the job he has done with the Seahawks this season.

Agreed, why would any coach want to leave a campus full of scenery like UCLA, plus he is treated like a king and the hours are pretty good too.

Be thankful your team made a change at GM. Some teams are not that 'fortunate'!!!

Looks like Mike McCoy might be the Chargers new Head Coach.

He will be there until they win 3 bowl games in a row, then he will jump to the NFL.

Pete Carroll jumped ship at USC after the NCAA caught him breaking the rules.

Then USC bought a boat load of Kiffins. Now the Kiffins are starting to jump ship. I hear Kiffins are better swimmers than Lemmings. Lemmings on the other hand have no fear of heights and like to prove it by jumping off cliffs.

He seem to be the most sought after coach, glad he is landing in San Diego. That is one nice place to live!
