Report: Chargers talking to Lovie Smith

1/11/2013

The San Diego Chargers coaching search is kicking into high gear.

New general manager Tom Telesco is interviewing former Chicago coach Lovie Smith on Friday, according to U-T San Diego. Smith has long been expected to be a favorite for the job, along with Colts’ offensive coordinator Bruce Arians. Arians is supposed to interview in San Diego on Monday.

I think Smith would be a great choice, but the problem is he was fired in Chicago because his offense sagged. San Diego needs more help on offense than on defense.

Still, Smith’s experience is impressive.

U-T San Diego also reports former Arizona coach Ken Whisenhunt will interview for the job Saturday.
