College team wooing key Chargers coach
By Bill Williamson
Could the San Diego Chargers be on the verge of losing their special teams coach to the college ranks?
Our SEC blogger, Chris Low, reports that the Tennessee Volunteers are once again trying to pursue Rich Bisaccia to become their special teams coordinator. He could also get the associate head coach label as well.
It is not known if Bisaccia would be interested in going to the college ranks. He was offered the job two years ago before Lane Kiffin bolted to USC.
The Chargers would miss Bisaccia. He is considered a premier special-teams coach. The unit made major strides under Bisaccia in 2011 after it had a disastrous season in 2010. This will be an interesting situation to monitor because San Diego would have to make an important hire if Bisaccia does leave.
