NFL: Los Angeles Chargers Minicamp Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

Good morning, Chargers fans!

We recently got a lot of nuggets from John Spanos in regards to how ownership plans to handle the hiring process of their next head coach and general manager. Things like "no max" on what they're willing to spend and "previous coaching experience is a plus" were thrown out there.

It remains to be seen just how much weight those words will hold, so until then, we're all just a long for the ride until things really start to move on that front.

This morning, however, I want to hear all of your thoughts on the order in which you believe the Chargers should make their hires. Specifically, should the Chargers hire their next general manager first before the next head coach, or vice versa? Why or why not?

Whatever you believe, be sure to share all of your thoughts below as to why one way or the other is better.

And now for today’s links.
