Chargers New HC Mike McCoy Wants to Keep DC John Pagano on Staff

Chargers new head coach Mike McCoy hopes to retain incumbent defensive coordinator John Pagano next season, according to Kevin Acee.

Pagano’s defense ranked ninth in the NFL last season, finishing sixth against the rush and 18th against the pass on what was a disappointing Chargers team.

McCoy is a strong offensive play caller and needs a defensive coordinator who’s more than capable of managing the defense. Pagano actually drew interest some interest from other team’s around the league as a defensive coordinator replacement, so the regime in San Diego is most likely looking for some continuity on the defensive side of the ball versus sweeping changes across the board.
