Philip Rivers was hoping Mike McCoy would be his new head coach

Earlier this week, the San Diego Chargers hired former Broncos offensive coordinator Mike McCoy as their next head coach.

Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers told the media that he was hoping McCoy would become his new head coach.

“Of the potential candidates, I can honestly say this is the guy I was hoping for. I feel great about it,” said Rivers, per Marty Caswell of 1090 Sports Radio.

Hopefully McCoy can help Rivers overcome the issues he’s been having over the past few seasons.
