    The San Diego Chargers today established the following process that will lead to the hiring of both a new general manager and a new head coach:
    • Charger President Dean Spanos has retained Ron Wolf, the former Green Bay Packers General Manager, as a consultant to advise the Chargers throughout the general manager and head coach hiring process.
    • Spanos and Wolf will be joined by longtime Charger executives Ed McGuire and John Spanos on the four-person working group that will be responsible for conducting all general manager and head coach interviews. The new general manager will join the process in the interviews for the new head coach.
    • Throughout the interview process the Chargers will not be releasing or commenting upon the names of potential interviewees. This is because some job candidates are still employed by NFL teams participating in the upcoming playoffs, and the Chargers will keep the names confidential so as not to cause a distraction for those teams and job candidates.
    • The goal of the interview process is to hire a general manager first, and then a head coach to follow, although the working group will remain as flexible as necessary to attract the best possible candidates for both positions.
    • The hiring process will begin immediately, with the Chargers today beginning to seek permission from NFL playoff teams to begin speaking with candidates employed by those teams.

    Why not hire Ron Wolf?? Ohh yeah, Ron is too smart to take a job answering to baby boy Spanos.

    Wolf actually worked in this exact same capacity for the Raiders last offseason - and granted while that makes me slightly apprehensive (because well... look where the Raiders are now but they were a flaming bag of :poop: to start with), they did end up coming out with one of the two top GM candidates on the market so far as I was concerned (and a guy whose specialty is personnel eval). So if Spanos has actually put on his big boy pants and Wolf actually is more than just a paper consultant there to add "legitimacy" of the hires, we might get an actual GM and not someone who will still cowtow to the family's profit margins.

    This is a good thing, Dean and Johnny boy making this decision on their own is kind of frightening to think of.

    This Wolf thing is all a big ruse. Don't fall for the PR move made by Dean.
