AFC West news and notes
Posted by ESPN.com's Bill Williamson
• The Chargers say they will stay in San Diego in 2009. The chances of the Chargers moving to Los Angeles will increase if a stadium deal in San Diego isn't figured out.
• The Kansas City Star handicaps potential coaching candidates for the Chiefs' opening. There have been no reported interviews. The speculation remains that the team will pursue Arizona offensive coordinator Todd Haley after the Super Bowl.
• Former Seattle and San Francisco assistant John Marshall is expected to talk to the Oakland Raiders about their defensive coordinator job as the Raiders continue to try to compile a coaching staff without naming a full-time head coach. Also, former Oakland defensive backs coach Darren Perry is now Green Bay's safeties coach.
The Chargers have re-signed eight players for the 2009 season. They are: linebacker Eric Bakhtiari, wide receiver Gary Banks, running back Eldra Buckley, defensive end Andre Coleman, guard Brandyn Dombrowski, cornerbacks Grant Mason and DeJuan Tribble and defensive tackle Ogemdi Nwagbuo. All of the players except Tribble signed for one year. Tribble signed for two years.
