San Diego Chargers to Interview Lovie Smith Today, Whisenhunt Tomorrow

Jonathan Daniel

The San Diego Chargers will start their search for a new Head Coach by interviewing recently fired coaches Lovie Smith and Ken Whisenhunt. Mike Zimmer and Bruce Arians are rumored to have interviews after them.

Word out of Chargers Park is that the San Diego Chargers are preparing to conduct their seond interview for their open Head Coach position today, and they're targeting two recently-fired guys with Head Coaching experience.

I'm not positive what "long-eyed job" means, but I do believe the rest of that tweet translates to Lovie Smith, recently fired by the Chicago Bears, interviewing with the Chargers today and Whisenhunt, recently fired by the Arizona Cardinals, interviewing tomorrow.

If we're to believe the rest of the rumors being spread, the Bolts will follow those up by interviewing Bengals Defensive Coordinator Mike Zimmer and Colts Offensive Coordinator Bruce Arians. The team already interviewed Mike Zimmer once, in 2007, and ended up choosing Norv Turner over him for the Head Coach position that was available after Marty Schottenheimer's firing.

If nothing else, Lovie Smith will satisfy the Rooney Rule requirement and allow the Chargers to quickly hire any candidate they want in the future.
