    Honestly, I can't believe this. I really thought he was part of the old boy network, AJ's guy.

    Per Chargers.com
    ====================================

    The Chargers announced Tuesday that the team has relieved defensive coordinator Ted Cottrell of his duties.

    Inside linebackers coach Ron Rivera, who has previous coordinator experience with the Chicago Bears, has been promoted and will call the defensive plays for the Chargers.

    Head Coach Norv Turner and Rivera are scheduled to meet with the media Tuesday afternoon.

    I am surprised AJ/Dean did it. Lets hope Ron can get the aggresiveness back in time to salvage the season. 10-6 can still get us to the lombardi...

    I am pleasantly surprised but that seals it. What was wrong with the San Diego Chargers? Well according to the organization it was Ted Cottrell. Now he's gone and let's hope and pray Rivera can get it done. Do what you did for the Bears, but if we do make it to the big show let's win this time. In Rivera we trust!

    You got that right. Nowhere to go but up. Even if we can get a top 20 D, it'll be a huge improvement and we might start winning some of these games.

    I am sorry you are not. I thngk everyone gave Teddy a chance, towards the end of last season his defensive unit was hitting on all cylinders. This season they were misfiring.

    Will the move work, I cant get much worse statistically. Doning nothing was not going to resolve the problem IMO. I have faith the Chargers can right the ship without Teddy.

    I'd like to know which one of the two did it - was it AJ thereby ending the claims that he's all about nepotism or was it Dean doing what AJ was unwilling to do?

    Exactly!

    I am happy because Teddy was not getting it done.

    Hopefully Rivera will light a damn fire under these guys!!

    AJ pulled the trigger I am 99% sure. He has control over the assistants contracts. Something he changed after Marty.

    Should have been done 2 weeks ago. But a great move by management that may save our season.

    Rivera, you better not mess this up. No more soft zones with a 4 man pass rush.

    Norv, probably wanted Teddy fired weeks ago. I bet that it was Dean's call. AJ is probably helping Teddy clean out his locker.

    Hopefully, Rivera can change things around for the D. It simply wasn't working with Cottrell.
