When Can the San Diego Chargers Start Interviewing Head Coaching Candidates?

Patrick McDermott

Interested in the San Diego Chargers hiring a coordinator from a playoff team as their next Head Coach? You might need to wait a while.

Things in the NFL are never quite as easy and free-flowing as you may think. If an NFL team with an open Head Coach position wants to interview a coordinator that's on a playoff team, for instance, there are rules and regulations about how, and when, that can actually happen. I'll be happy to present those rules to you:

  • January 6: Assistant coaches under contract to playoff clubs that have byes in the Wild Card weekend may be interviewed for head coaching positions through the conclusion of the Wild Card games.
  • January 13: Assistant coaches under contract to playoff clubs that won their Wild Card games may be interviewed for head coaching positions through the conclusion of Divisional Playoff games.
  • January 27: An assistant coach, whose team is participating in the Super Bowl, who has previously interviewed for another club’s head coaching job may have a second interview with such club no later than the Sunday preceding the Super Bowl.
