(Colo.)-Broncos' McCoy hired as Chargers head coach

SAN DIEGO (AP) — Mike McCoy is the new head coach of the San Diego Chargers.

McCoy had been the offensive coordinator for the Broncos. His hiring comes three days after top-seeded Denver was eliminated from the playoffs with a home loss to the Baltimore Ravens.

The 40-year-old McCoy replaces Norv Turner, who was fired along with general manager A.J. Smith after the Chargers finished 7-9 and missed the playoffs for the third straight season.

McCoy tutored quarterbacks Kyle Orton and Tim Tebow in 2011, and Peyton Manning in 2012 while the Broncos were winning back-to-back AFC West titles.

With the Chargers, McCoy will work with Philip Rivers, who struggled this season, in large part because of a shaky offensive line. Rivers was sacked 49 times and committed 22 turnovers, giving him 47 turnovers in two seasons.
