Marty Schottenheimer Staying Put

Marty Schottenheimer

After tons of speculation and some basically writing him off the Chargers and Team president Dean Spanos have confirmed Schottenheimer will return for the final year of his contract. Marty was also offered a $4.5 million extension, but turned down this offer. It would have been a farce to fire a coach who took his team to a 14-2 record in the regular season so I’m glad to see Spanos and General Manager A.J. Smith came to their senses.



  1. […] It was no less than a month ago we wrote that Marty Schottenheimer was going to stay put with the San Diego Chargers afer much speculation of him getting fired. Schottenheimer had been feuding with A.J. Smith and Dean Spanos for quite some time and it seems nothing deep down has really changed. Chris Mortensen of ESPN has announced the Chargers have changed their mind and fired Marty after all. I think this is a terrible move by Smith and Spanos given the timing of the decision and committing to him just a month ago. I am a huge fan of the Chargers and just wish Schottenheimer was given one last chance because he has done very well in San Diego. A.J. Smith, Dean Spanos, Marty Schottenheimer, NFL, NFL coach firing, San Diego Chargers […]
