Chargers Ask To Interview Pats’ Matt Patricia

The Chargers have requested permission to interview Patriots defensive coordinator Matt Patricia, Adam Schefter of ESPN.com tweets. Patricia is the first known target of the Bolts in their coaching search. Matt Patricia

Patricia has also been linked to the Rams’ head coaching vacancy and he’s a popular name this offseason, even if he’s not as hyped up as colleague Josh McDaniels. The Chargers just fired an offensive-minded head coach in Mike McCoy, so Patricia could offer a change in philosophy. The Pats finished the regular season with the fewest points allowed of any team in the league. Meanwhile, the Bolts allowed 423 points, the fourth-highest in the NFL.

The Chargers are one of six teams now in search of a new head coach.

      It’s going to sting either way, that’s the price you pay when you’re team is on the top…luckily Belichick is not only a fantastic head coach he’s also good with his personnel so it’ll be “next man up” for the coordinator gigs

    Who was the last successful head coach that was formerly a coordinator for Belichick?

      You could argue Nick Saban, however at the collegiate level.

      There was a game where the CBS commentators spotted someone who looked exactly like him in the crowd.

    Chargers need a defensive coach that will bring toughness just like Marty did. The fact that he is coming from the best organization in football is only a plus. He knows how to do things the right way.
