After the Broncos lost their defensive coordinator Dennis Allen to division rival Oakland Raiders, they’ll be sending McCoy to another division rival. The Chargers, after another disappointing season under Norv Turner, finally made a coaching change after five years of mediocrity and under performing.

The Chargers and McCoy are currently working on the numbers and will hope to have everything finalized by the end of the day.

McCoy met with a few other teams before meeting with the Chargers on Monday. The Eagles, Bears and Cardinals all showed some interest in McCoy with Arizona showing some serious interest in the former Broncos offensive coordinator. The decision for McCoy may have come down to the quality he’d be working with — Philip Rivers versus Kevin Kolb.

Even with Rivers being the better option of the two, McCoy is still going to have a lot of work to do to turn Rivers around. Once regarded as one of the league’s better quarterbacks (NFL high quarterback rating in 2008 and an NFL high passing yards per game in 2010), Rivers quarterback rating has dropped every year since 2008 and has seen his touchdown totals drop every year since 2010.

Furthermore, Rivers has cost the Chargers some wins over the last two season by throwing late game interceptions or fumbling at crucial times when the game was in reach. The Chargers had five losses of seven points or less. In the loss to the Saints, Rivers fumbled with 19 seconds left on the Saints 33 yard line. In a loss to the Broncos, Rivers was intercepted by Jim Leonhard in the fourth quarter. Against the Bengals, Rivers fumbled with 4:33 left to play and it was returned to the San Diego 15.

The Chargers have a lot of talent holes on both sides of the ball, and will need some major improvements on the offensive side of the ball if they plan on getting back to the top of the AFC West.
