    Several league sources have told FOXSports.com that the Chargers have requested permission to interview Bears defensive coordinator Ron Rivera, Ravens defensive coordinator Rex Ryan and Saints defensive coordinator Gary Gibbs, among others.

    Rivera, who also was slated to fly out to San Diego to interview within the next 48 hours.

    In addition, while USC head coach Pete Carroll's name has been hot, team sources contend he is not a viable option at this point.

    San Francisco 49ers offensive coordinater Norv Turner could also be a candidate, as well as Seattle asstistant head Jim Mora.

    The Chargers fired Schottenheimer after 14-2 season in 2006, citing a "dysfunctional situation" between the coach and general manager A.J. Smith. Schottenheimer has a career record of 200-126-1 with Cleveland, Kansas City, Washington and San Diego.
