Shawne Merriman, a former player for the Los Angeles Chargers, recently spoke out about the team’s head coach, Brandon Staley. In an interview with Dan Dakich, Merriman expressed his belief that Staley’s time with the Chargers was coming to an end. Merriman praised Staley’s interviewing skills but criticized his inability to handle the media and answer questions without firing back.
Merriman acknowledged that Staley was hired by the Chargers because of his impressive interviewing abilities. However, he felt that the team made a mistake by sticking with Staley despite his inability to handle media criticism. According to Merriman, Staley’s clashes with the media and his inability to handle himself professionally were clear signs that he was not the right person for the job.
Changes in Chargers Coaching Staff
Following the Chargers’ loss to the Raiders, the team decided to make changes in their coaching staff. Head coach Brandon Staley was let go, and Giff Smith was named the interim head coach. The Chargers faced further challenges when they were forced to start Easton Stick in place of the injured Justin Herbert, resulting in another loss to the Texans.
In Week 17, the Chargers will face the Denver Broncos on the road. This game will be a crucial opportunity for the team to regroup and finish the season on a positive note.
