With San Diego moving closer to what G.M. A.J. Smith called in October a “new era of Chargers football,” a guy who was part of the old era of 49ers and Lions football is interested.
Peter King of Sports Illustrated reported during Football Night in America that Steve Mariucci is interested in coaching the Chargers, if the Chargers are interested in him.
Mariucci has been employed as an analyst with NFL Network since being fired by the Lions after the 2005 season. From time to time his name has surfaced in coaching scuttlebutt, but he has not yet shown any real interest in returning to the game.
