Smith, Marty Schottenheimer, Norv Turner, Tom Telesco, Mike McCoy, the athletic training staff, everyone in the front office, and all of the players and coaches I’ve been with at the Chargers for the past 13 years. It’s been one heck of a ride and I wouldn’t change anything. I would especially like to thank the fans for supporting me throughout my career.
