    SAN DIEGO (AP)—The San Diego Chargers fired defensive coordinator Greg Manusky after just one year on the job on Thursday and replaced him by promoting linebackers coach John Pagano.

    The shakeout came four days after the Chargers finished 8-8 and out of the playoffs for the second straight year.

    It also came two days after coach Norv Turner and general manager A.J. Smith were notified by team President Dean Spanos that they will return next season.

    Manusky, a former NFL linebacker, was hired away from the San Francisco 49ers last offseason to replace Ron Rivera, who left to become head coach of the Carolina Panthers.

    Pagano spent the last 10 seasons on San Diego’s staff and has coached linebackers since 2005.
