    Fresh off ESPNews. Apparently he had a major blowup today with AJ Smith and got axed.

    Re: Schottenheimer fired!

    Just saw as well.

    Kinda weird but not too stunning.

    He declined the 1 year contract extension.

    I guess Im "surprised".

    He and Smith really dislike each other alot.

    He took the 1year extension. Reportedly the players were very upset with the extension being so short that they believe that it cost them the 2 coordinatiors which is ridiculous because they got head coaching jobs. They would have left no matter what but AJ has a very tough task of winning these players back enough to listen to the new staff.

    " Schottenheimer, though, declined the team's offer of a one-year extension.

    The coach didn't offer specific reasons, but they could have to do with the spiraling salaries given to other NFL head coaches, and perhaps to his strained relationship with general manager A.J. Smith.

    "Right now, I wasn't comfortable accepting it," said Schottenheimer who will return to serve in the final year of an extension he received after the 2004 season. "

    PP,

    The article you cite was published on January 17. The news of Marty's firing came today on the 12th as a result of a blow up.

    Yea, I know.

    I cited that article in response to F Angelos' post about Marty taking the 1 year extension.

    He actually turned it down.

    Let's hope that they stay away - far away - from Rex Ryan.

    Given that they play a 3-4, he'd be a nice fit for them.

    His definitions and arguments were so clear in his own mind that he was unable to understand how any reasonable person could honestly differ with him.

    Man, and some people here think *we* have problems. Thank the lord I'm not a Chargers fan.

    How weird is that, their coaching staff explodes like they went 2-14.
