The Chargers fired offensive coordinator Frank Reich Monday, and Monday night brought news that his firing was part of a larger housecleaning by head coach Mike McCoy.
The Chargers issued a press release announcing the dismissal of five other assistant coaches. McCoy was told Monday his job was safe, but it’s likely these changes were part of that deal.
Also gone are offensive line coach Joe D’Alessandris, tight ends coach Pete Metzelaars, wide receivers coach Fred Graves, defensive line coach Don Johnson and assistant offensive line coach Andrew Dees.
Reich, D’Alessandris, Graves and Dees joined the Chargers in 2013, McCoy’s first year as head coach. Johnson came to San Diego in 2009 and Metzelaars joined the Chargers in 2014.
