The Chargers need a new offensive coordinator

We have yet another coordinator vacancy in the NFL.

Chargers offensive coordinator Clarence Shelmon won’t return for an eleventh season in San Diego.

“I’m just done. You know when it’s time. It’s time for me to go and do some other things with my life,” Shelmon said in a statement from the team.

Shelmon has been a coach for 37 years and was a running backs coach from 1978-2006, working with players like Emmitt Smith, Chris Warren, and LaDainian Tomlinson.

Shelmon may be the least known coordinator in the league since it’s Norv Turner’s offense and Turner calls the plays. Kevin Acee of the San Diego Union-Tribune says the position will be filled from within.

    Hue Jackson would love to stick it to the Raiders and go there…

    Well, Hue would actually have to NOT be an embarrassing failure to “stick it” to the Raiders by going to a divisional rival. I’m sure Oakland would love to know that he was going to go jeopardize the playoff chances for one of their competitors.

    Give Chargers fans the missing ingredient from team chaos : Hue Jackson as OC, undermining Norv 24 / 7 / 365.

    A new head coach & gm would be better.

    Please take Bill Musgrave from Minnesota!

    Mike Martz worked with Norv in Washington. Sadly, that could be a possibility.

    Hue would love the job. But he’d want some say over personnel. And the defense. And everything else….

    Hue would take the job, but would need to call the plays, and tell Norv, and AJ what to do. Also thell the players it’s all their fault if they do not win.

    Um, the Chargers have an OC in Norv Turner. What they need is a Head Coach as Norv is one of the worst in the league.

    Please bring in a real Offensive Coordinator and stop promoting from within. Look what happened when we promoted Manusky from LB Coach to our Defensive Coordinator. The guy sucked and had no scheme what so ever!
