It has been a little while since Steve Mariucci stood on the sideline as a head football coach. However, that could change in 2013 according to some NFL Rumors. It appears that Mooch is looking at returning to the game and the San Diego Chargers might be the right team for him.
Peter King of Sports Illustrated reported during Football Night in America that Steve Mariucci is interested in coaching the Chargers, if the Chargers are interested in him.Advertisement
If you want to make a splash, this would be the name to do it. I am not sure how effective that he would be, but it would be worth a shot if you are SD. You need something to give the fans hope. This year was beyond brutal and I can’t imagine having to sit through a season like they had. Everyone regressed and there was nothing fun about it.
If Mooch could turn the team around, it would be perfect for him and the team. It has been a long time (2005 to be exact) since he watched over a team, but that might be a good thing. He has had time away to look at all aspects of the job and he may have picked up a few tips along the way.
This is going to be something to watch for in the off-season. I expect this rumor to pick up and Mooch should be considered for other jobs. There is still football left to be played but coaching rumors are always fun.
