In his press release, Dean Spanos points to the fact that the organization could not succeed "with such dysfunction between our head coach and general manager."
Spanos finally dealt with the rift in the organization between the head coach and the general manager by canning Marty; a move that undoubtedly states that AJ Smith is far more important to the Chargers long-term success than Marty Schottenheimer.
Marty has brought two AFC West championships to San Diego. For that, I will forever be grateful. But AJ Smith has put together the most talented team in the NFL, and a coach who can lead us to a championship by using these talented players is what San Diego deserves.
Bill Cowher is sitting out there and is certainly my number one coach as a replacement, but it will be interesting to see what candidates the Chargers will interview to fill the most attractive NFL Coaching job around.
