San Diego Chargers Daily Links: January 7, 2013

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


Bears, Eagles and Chargers have interest in Colts offensive coordinator Bruce Arians - Brian McIntyre
The Chargers plan to hire a GM before hiring a head coach and president Dean Spanos and consultant Ron Wolf have already interviewed Chargers director of player personnel Jimmy Raye and Colts director of player personnel Tom Telesco.

O-line Chargers' top offseason priority - Michael Gehlken
San Diego has holes on its roster, either ones that were exposed last year or, with 19 players scheduled to become unrestricted free agents in March, that are about to open. The following are three top priorities on either side of the ball.

Chargers almost set on GM, moving into coach search - Kevin Acee
At or near the top of that list, regardless of whether Telesco is the new GM, is Colts offensive coordinator Bruce Arians. The Chargers had not previously inquired about Arians or other candidates because they wanted to get their GM in place first.

Canepa: Chargers need to make a face - Nick Canepa
The Chargers need a face. They need one on the sideline, in their locker room, in the community, in front of the pens and notepads and cameras and tape recorders. They need a man who will man-up and admit his failings and not get overwhelmed by his success, a rock star who can raise the public pulse.

Mailbag: More on the GM, HC Search - Ricky Henne
Dean Spanos has been adamant that he isn’t eliminating anyone from the search. He said that it will be an "open process" in which they interview and evaluate all sorts of candidates for both positions. They feel the best way to assess the entire field is to interview as many qualified candidates as possible. That will most likely include candidates who have been in similar roles in the past as well as up and comers.

Chargers Announce Rescaled Ticket Plan for 2013 -
Season ticket prices for two-thirds of the seats in Qualcomm Stadium – approximately 45,000 seats – remain unchanged, or are being reduced, for the sixth-consecutive season. Nearly 10,000 of those season seats in the View level have been reduced and will be available for $50 or less per game, including seats as low as $39 per game.

Official Update from President Dean Spanos on GM Search -
The process is winding down. As you know, we’ve been on the road the last few days and just returned to San Diego. It was a productive trip as we were able to meet with a number of people in a short period of time. Hopefully we can make a decision within the next day or two.
