The San Diego Chargers might move to a new city next season but if they do it won’t be with a new head coach.
According to Michael Gehlken of the San Diego Union-Tribune, the Chargers have informed head coach Mike McCoy he will be retained for the 2016 season.
The news came on the heels of a 4-12 season where numerous rumors had McCoy’s job in jeopardy. The Chargers will indeed make changes to their coaching staff but Mike McCoy will not be among them.
Chargers president of football operations John Spanos addressed the decision:
As the 2015 season has now concluded, we are disappointed with the outcome as our expectations have not been met.
I have the utmost confidence in our leadership. Tom Telesco, Mike McCoy, and I have already begun evaluating every aspect of the team to take the essential steps to put a winning product back on the field. We will waste no time in making the necessary changes.
McCoy joined the Chargers in 2013 and will enter his final contract year in 2016.
