IN NEED OF A RE-CHARGE: Chargers President & Chair Dean Spanos said of McCoy and GM Tom Telesco, "We needed change. The dynamic of the two individuals we got is perfect for the change I want." In San Diego, Kevin Acee writes neither McCoy nor Telesco have "held a top job before," so "we don’t know how they’ll do." Spanos, who "seems energized by the process of change, acknowledged he doesn’t know." Acee: "Folks, this is change. And it does seem right." During their respective introductory press conferences, it was "obvious this is without a doubt a different duo." Telesco is "engaging," while McCoy "seizes a room" (SAN DIEGO UNION-TRIBUNE, 1/16).
