In January, the Chargers made sure that Mike McCoy would not be a lame duck coach by giving him a one-year extension to take him through the 2017 season. In the midst of a disappointing year, the coach confirmed that he has yet to receive another extension, as Tom Krasovic of U-T San Diego writes.
The Chargers are now 5-9 on the year and they’ll finish with their second straight losing season. In his four years at the helm, the Bolts are just 27-35. The Chargers made it to the AFC Divisional round under McCoy in 2013, but they have not returned to the playoffs since. In a “What have you done for me lately?” league, patience is wearing thin with McCoy. The Chargers are unwilling to commit to him beyond 2017 and it’s not necessarily guaranteed that he’ll keep his job this offseason, either.
Already, we have two coaching vacancies in the league. Both the Rams and Jaguars will be seeking new coaches in the New Year. The Chargers, in theory, could join that group.
