    Mike Nolan. ;)

    The San Diego Chargers have brought in a new linebackers coach to fill the spot that Joe Barry had departed. Barry signed on with the Washington Redskins to become their defensive coordinator and the Chargers have filled the hole by signing former Atlanta Falcons defensive coordinator Mike Nolan.

    Nolan has spent a number of years as a defensive coordinator in the league and should bring plenty of coaching experience onto the coaching staff. He has also spend time as the head coach of the San Francisco 49ers.

    Great signing. Personally love it when we sign guys that have at some point been head coaches for supporting roles since they always tend to come in and whip their side of the ball into shape.

    I am OK with that. Providing he works on tackling.

    If it gets to the point where we need a position coach to play in the game, you can forget about the postseason. ;)

    Like this hire. We need more badasses on the team.
    Besides, when we win the AFCW and go deep into the playoffs next season and Pagano lands a HC gig, Nolan will be waiting in the wings!

    Maybe he can do something about the incurable "slant over the middle" that we get burned on all so often.

    The way our LB's tackled last year, I was frankly surprised someone would want our LB's coach for their Defensive Coordinator - go figure.

    Jazzed about Mike Nolan assuming that position for us! :cool:

    Nepotism's a hell of a drug. And people tend to forget... AJ's a "special consultant" with the Skins now - may God, Buddha, and Black Jesus have mercy on their souls.

    If only. But I'm sure Blue could Photoshop Nolan's face onto a Walker Texas Ranger ad.

    I wonder if anyone in the front office woke up this morning and said, "Dang, I just realized we now have two coaches from the Hoodie Junior coaching tree?"

    Excellent hire. I didn't even think we'd splash at LB coach. Now if only we could get Sharence Clemons back ;)
