Bye Coach

Chargers Fire Schottenheimer
Published: 2/12/2007 6:42:02 PM

In a stunning move, Chargers president Dean Spanos has fired coach Marty Schottenheimer. Spanos blamed the move on a "dysfunctional situation" between Schottenheimer and general manager A. J. Smith, saying the two had clashed throughout the season.

The Chargers had the best regular-season record in the NFL at 14-and-2 but losing the playoff to New England didn't help the coach's situation.

Schottenheimer had a year left on his contact.
