Chargers add to staff
By Bill Williamson
San Diego has hired former Arizona special teams coach Kevin Spencer, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
He is the third former Arizona coach named to new coach Mike McCoy’ staff. Spencer was the special teams coach in Arizona under Ken Whisenhunt. Whisenhunt is McCoy’s offensive coordinator. Former Arizona receivers coach Frank Reich is San Diego’s quarterbacks coach.
Spencer also worked with Whisenhunt in Pittsburgh, where they won a Super Bowl, as a fellow assistant.
UPDATE: Schefter reports Oakland is talking to former Madison Square Garden president Scott O’Neil about a president’s role with the team. Oakland has also been linked to Ray Anderson of the NFL. The primary duty of this role will be on the business side, trying to secure a new stadium for the team.
Arrowheadpride.com reports the Chiefs will workout quarterback Rudy Carpenter. If he is signed, Carpenter will be considered a longshot to make the team.
