Breaking news with Adam Shefter on NFL Net.

Offered 1 year @ 4.5 million with buyout for 2008 and he has TURNED IT DOWN

He will return though for 2007.

Cam Cameron is on his way to Miami to interview.




*edit* added more details.

Nice, they made the right decision in my opinion.

He only has 1 year left in his contract, so we will be in the Super Bowl in 2 years.

I'm sure it helped that there aren't many great head coach candidates out there.

“I have decided that Marty Schottenheimer is the best person to lead the Chargers in the 2007 season. General Manager A.J. Smith and I agree on this fundamental point. That is why we are pleased to welcome Marty and his coaching staff back for Marty’s sixth season as head coach of the San Diego Chargers.

“We are all bitterly disappointed how this season ended, but we can’t allow our disappointment to cloud the achievements of our franchise over the past few years. Only two teams have won more regular season games over the past three years than the Chargers. We have 24 key players under long-term contracts through at least 2009. This is a fine young team, with great chemistry, and right now stability is important for this team. I’m already looking forward to next season.

“That is why we are also offering one-year contract extensions for Coach Schottenheimer’s staff, through 2008. We also offered a one-year $4.5 million contract extension to Marty, with a team option buy-out of $1 million for the 2008 season. He decided not to accept this extension, and I respect his decision.

“Now it is time to put this issue behind us and move forward together. That is what I told both Marty and A.J. when I met with them this afternoon. The entire Chargers family will do whatever it takes to bring a championship to San Diego.”

Good but now they may lose Cameron which would hurt more IMO.

Brock

wow, he is going in as a lame duck? I think this team is not going to do nearly as well next season as they did this season at this point.

Cameron screwed himself in that Pats game.

Nice to see that the heartache will continue in Sandy Eggo. The good news is that it will be one and done for them next season. The bad news is that we at best split the regular season games with them and they most likely win the West again.

This is good news for every team in the league!

There isn't another coach I'd want to keep in this division.

Actually he's the last coach I want in our division. He kills division opponents during the regular season. Or at least, he's generally been good overall in terms of wins/losses in the regular season. What the Chargers do in the playoffs probably has nothing to do with us.

that sucks. The Chargers are going to be a bitch twice a year as long as Marty is there.

I think Mary will be there as long as he wants to be. They get all pissed off and rant and rave about firing him. Then they start remembering all those empty seats and all that lost $.

This sounds very familiar to the Chiefs circa 1997-1998....


I doubt the Chargers will fall as much as the Chiefs did in 98, because they wont have as many hired thugs, but you never know.......the Chiefs started off 4-0 in 98.

They dont need to hire them, they are already there.
