    Chargers receive permission to talk to Norv Turner and Jim Mora Jr. In addition Fox Sports is reporting Iowa head coach Kirk Ferentz is in the debate. Rex Ryan, as of 433pm, has not been contacted for permission. We already know Gibbs, Rivera have been contacted with permission granted

    NFLN said AJ wants to have all the interviews set up by tonight and have a new HC in place in 7-8 days.

    Just say no to NORV!

    He has not impressed me at all as a HC.

    I've never seen the allure with Ferentz, he's a 8-4

    Coach annually. I'm not saying he's a bad coach, but if the Chargers decide to go collegiate with this hire, AJ and Dean need to get on a jet to Boise, Idaho and ask Chris Peterson what beach he wants his house on! Or go after a Bob Stoops, Pete Carroll type that has won something.

    Yeah, I will take Rice's opinion on that one. Norv is a good OC. He is a bad HC, otherwise Dallas would have hired him.

    Rex Ryan. 3-4 guy. We have an OC already that knows the system.

    Can you imagine Rex Ryan scheming plays for our D? :icon_eek:

    I'm leaning more towards the young guys, Rivera, Ryan, Chow. With good OC and DC we may become a more aggressive team, go after the ball more, hell just more nasty would be great for me. I loved the fact that Brady said the Bolt game was the toughest he'd ever played, I want more of that. If we can't beat you on the scoreboard, you sure as hell are going to know you played the damn game. :bolt2:
