According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the San Diego Chargers will hire Ken Whisenhunt as their offensive coordinator.
Whisenhut was the head coach for the Arizona Cardinals from 2007-2012. Whisenhut led the Cardinals to two division titles, including an appearance in Super Bowl XLIII.
From 2001-06 Whisenhut was on the Steelers coaching staff, first as a tight ends coach (2001-03), then serving as the Steelers offensive coordinator (2004-06).
Whisenhut called one of the most famous plays in Super Bowl history, a wide receiver reverse pass, Antwaan Randle El hooking up with Hines Ward, for the only touchdown pass thrown by a wide receiver in Super Bowl history.
Personally, I think this is a great hire for the Chargers. After Kurt Warner, Whisenhut never had a serviceable quarterback in Arizona, but his offenses have always succeeded when he’s had a competent quarterback. I think the Chargers offense can make huge strides with Mike McCoy as head coach and Whisenhut as the offensive coordinator.
