Chargers will hire ex-Cardinals coach Ken Whisenhunt as offensive coordinator.
Instead of filling Mike McCoy's shoes in Denver, Whiz is expected to follow McCoy to the Chargers to work with Philip Rivers. McCoy has already stated that he won't be calling the plays, leaving that job for his coordinator. The Cowboys and Jets had openings as well, but those jobs aren't as attractive. Per the Union-Tribune San Diego, Whisenhunt was likely to be the Chargers' head-coaching choice had McCoy not been available. Whiz and McCoy are both descendants of the Dan Henning offensive tree.
