San Diego Chargers Daily Links: January 17, 2013

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

Your daily dose of San Diego Chargers news & notes from around the web.

For Chargers, change seems good - Kevin Acee (paywall)
"We needed change," Spanos said Tuesday afternoon, following the press conference to announce Mike McCoy as the Chargers’ head coach. "The dynamic of the two individuals we got is perfect for the change I want."

Chargers say Ron Wolf served purpose - Michael Gehlken (paywall)
The Chargers had the retired general manager in their interview room, where he consulted this month in two searches. They led to the hirings of GM Tom Telesco and coach Mike McCoy. Looking back, his presence served its purpose, the team says.

Hirings of Marc Trestman, Chip Kelly follow NFL teams' same old predictable pattern - Michael Silver
More than ever before, NFL teams are looking for offensive gurus as head coaches — and the pool from which they're choosing is almost exclusively white.

Mike McCoy named head coach of the San Diego Chargers - Brian McIntyre
McCoy, 40, has been with the Broncos since the 2009 season, coaching quarterbacks and serving as the team's offensive coordinator. McCoy has received interest as a head coach primarily for the outstanding job he's done the last two seasons, adding the read-option to the Broncos offense in the middle of the 2011 season in order to suit quarterback Tim Tebow's unique skill-set.

McCoy's Plans as Head Coach Have Officially Begun - Ricky Henne
Even though he has a strong background on the offensive side of the ball calling plays, McCoy plans to bring in an offensive coordinator who will fill that role for the Bolts. Still, he will be heavily involved in the game-planning and instillation of the offense. McCoy also plans to have an open door policy with his players, working with them tirelessly to develop the best game plan possible.

Bolts Madness: Jammer vs. Liuget - Ricky Henne
After a day off, Bolts Madness returns pitting two defensive plays against each other. First up is the sixth seed as Quentin Jammer makes a phenomenal one-handed interception against the Raiders. That play goes up against our 11 seed, Corey Liuget's big sack on Drew Brees.
