The San Diego Chargers have a new general manager: Tom Telesco.
The team has announced that Telesco is the new G.M., and a press conference introducing him has been set for this afternoon.
Telesco comes from the Colts, where he was vice president of football operations, and he was widely viewed as a strong candidate to land the job. So this news comes as no surprise.
Now Telesco will turn his attention to hiring a new head coach in San Diego. The fact that the Chargers brought in an executive from Indianapolis will ramp up speculation that the leading candidate to become San Diego’s coach is Bruce Arians, the Indianapolis offensive coordinator who spent most of the season as the Colts’ head coach while Chuck Pagano was undergoing chemotherapy. Arians is a strong candidate, and he may now have a strong ally in San Diego.
