Watch Mike McCoy's Introductory Press Conference

The San Diego Chargers have posted the full video of new Head Coach Mike McCoy's introductory press conference on their website. You can view it here.

If you saw it live, you'll probably want to watch it again. It was that good.

If you didn't see it live, make sure you're sitting down because you're about to be blown away by a coach that demands the attention of everyone in the room.

Here are some stats that we maybe haven't yet mentioned:

McCoy has been the Offensive Coordinator for the Denver Broncos for four seasons. Before that, he went to the Super Bowl as the Quarterbacks Coach for John Fox and the Carolina Panthers.

As a player, he was a Quarterback for the Long Beach State 49ers and Utah Utes before a short career in the CFL with the Amsterdam Admirals and Calgary Stampeders.

When we start looking for McCoy to hire an Offensive Coordinator, we'll probably end up looking at guys that focus on the QB and the passing game instead of the former Offensive Linemen (Mike Tice comes to mind) that would rather run the ball on each down.


McCoy: "Offensive Coordinator Will Call the Plays"

San Diego Chargers Head Coach Mike McCoy will hire and Offensive Coordinator to run the offense and call the plays.


Live Stream: McCoy's Introductory Press Conference

The San Diego Chargers will be introducing their new Head Coach, Mike McCoy, to the press and the fans at 2pm (Pacific) today. The press conference will be live streamed on there site here.

Assuming this goes as GM Tom Telesco's press conference went, McCoy will thank the Spanos family, discuss his first (and only) interview with the Chargers and thank those that gave him a chance with the Denver Broncos before taking questions from the San Diego sports media.

One of the most common questions I've gotten since the announcement of McCoy as the team's new Head Coach is whether or not he will call the offensive plays himself or hire an Offensive Coorinator to do that. This will undoubtedly be asked, and hopefully will be answered, during this press conference.

There will also probably be a question or two regarding Peyton Manning and his involvement in the play-calling and offensive gameplan for the Broncos in 2012.

You can use the comments below as an "Open Thread" for the press conference.
