NFL Rumors: Andy Reid Could Be Moving His West Coast Offense to the West Coast
According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, San Diego is not interested replacing Norv Turner with Philadelphia Eagles head coach Andy Reid. Reid has a 130-93-1 record in the regular season and a 10-9 record in the playoffs.
Schefter said “Some around the league have wondered whether Reid would be a good fit back in California, where he grew up, but the San Diego Chargers are planning to go in other directions than Reid according to league sources.”
Reid has to be in consideration for the job because his resume is more impressive than Turner’s when he was hired. Turner had a .414 career winning percentage with the Oakland Raiders and the Washington Redskins prior to being hired by San Diego. Reid has a .586 career winning percentage.
It makes sense that San Diego’s front office would consider Reid because he turned Michael Vick from a scrambling quarterback to a guy with the fourth best QB rating in the league during the 2010 season.
Even though Vick only had one great season, Reid could be a great fit with San Diego QB Philip Rivers who has been a great passer at times in his career.
While the regular season is important, San Diego needs to hire a guy with playoff success. San Diego’s front office has never hired a coach with a winning record in the playoffs prior to joining San Diego.
Reid needs to be considered as an option to replace Turner no matter what the sources reportedly say about him.
