Chargers announce more coaching moves

It was fitting that Chargers receivers coach Charlie Joiner announced his retirement on Tuesday afternoon.  Because the Chargers have announced his replacement on Tuesday evening.

Fred Graves will now coach the team’s receivers.

Graves, 62, has spent the last two seasons with the Panthers.  He has 37 years of experience, with all but one of them spent coaching receivers.

The Chargers also have hired Bills offensive line coach Joe D’Alessandris to coach the offensive line.  He’s a 36-year coaching veteran.

Finally, and as expected, Kevin Spencer has been named the team’s special-teams coordinator.  He served in that capacity for the last six years with the Cardinals, and five before that with the Steelers.  From 1998 through 2001, Spencer coached special teams with the Colts.

    Fred was the kid following in Charlie’s footsteps. Now he’s the man.

    “Chargers also have fired Bills offensive line coach Joe D’Alessandris to coach the offensive line.”

    The Chargers must be the most powerful front office in the league to fire a coach from another football team.

    The Bolts’ new HC McCoy is well aware that DB coach Milus looked horrible in the Broncos playoff loss to Baltimore.

    The HC also knows he, the HC, is responsible, because he hired Milus. And the new GM hired McCoy

    So let’s see how his coaching staff does next season, from the top down.
