The Los Angeles Chargers have retained defensive coordinator Gus Bradley and offensive coordinator Ken Whisenhunt.
The Chargers announced the return of head coach Anthony Lynn’s top two assistants Tuesday.
Continuity on the coaching staff was a major offseason goal for Lynn and general manager Tom Telesco after the Chargers (9-7) barely missed the playoffs in their relocation season. Los Angeles won nine of its final 12 games Redskins Cheap Jerseys , including five straight at StubHub Center.
Bradley was a hot commodity in the offseason coaching market after putting together one of the NFL’s top defenses in his first season with the Chargers. Their 17 points allowed per game was third-best in the league, and they ranked among the leaders with 43 sacks and 18 interceptions.
The former Jacksonville head coach joined Los Angeles on a one-year contract last winter.
Whisenhunt’s powerful offense ranked fourth in the NFL with 376.6 yards per game, with quarterback Philip Rivers enjoying a resurgent 4,515-yard season alongside 1,393-yard receiver Keenan Allen and 1,105-yard rusher Melvin Gordon.
Whisenhunt, the former Arizona and Tennessee head coach DeShone Kizer Jersey , rejoined the Chargers in 2016, one year before Lynn became their head coach.
Former NFL running back Reggie Bush alleges that dangerous conditions at a St. Louis stadium led to a season-ending injury in a case that could leave the city on the hook for damages, even though the Rams are long gone.
Defendants in the civil trial, which began Tuesday, include two public entities – the St. Louis Regional Convention and Sports Complex Authority and the St. Louis Convention and Visitors Commission – as well as the Rams, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Bush was playing for the San Francisco 49ers in November 2015 when he slipped and fell in a game after being pushed out of bounds at the former Edward Jones Dome, now called the Dome at America’s Center. Bush’s cleats apparently slipped on a concrete surface about 11 yards (10 meters) behind the 49ers bench. The suit says the area had been nicknamed the ”concrete ring of death.” The Rams moved to Los Angeles the following season.
”You can see http://www.greenbaypackersteamonline.co ... ams-jersey , it’s like all of a sudden he’s running on an ice rink,” Bush’s lawyer Tim Cronin told jurors in opening statements as he played video of the injury. ”Whatever risks a football player assumes, concrete 11 yards outside the sidelines is not one of them.”
Two weeks after Bush tore the lateral meniscus of his left knee, the Dome covered the concrete surface with rubber padding, according to his suit. Bush’s fall followed a similar incident at the Dome on Oct. 25, 2015, in which Cleveland Browns quarterback Josh McCown slid into a wall Youth Isaac Yiadom Jersey , injuring his shoulder.
After sitting out the rest of the 2015 season, Bush signed with Buffalo for the following season, saying at the time that his surgically repaired knee was 100 percent. But his attorney told jurors that the knee injury prevented Bush from getting a more lucrative deal as a free agent.
Debbie Champion, who represents the Regional Convention and Sports Complex Authority and the St. Louis Convention and Visitors Commission, told jurors that the Rams, whom she called ”the football experts,” controlled the stadium during home games Randy White Jersey , not her clients. She said Bush’s injury happened ”during the normal course of a football game.”
Rams lawyer Daniel Allmayer said the team took steps to ensure the safety of players, including installing carpet runners in the tunnels between the locker rooms and turf field. Allmayer said that after Bush got hurt, Rams Operations Director Bruce Warwick immediately contacted the St. Louis Conventions and Visitors Commission about covering the exposed concrete.
”Mr. Warwick had to get the authority of the CVC if he wanted to change it or move things because it was their stadium – their area,” Allmayer said.
Bush’s suit doesn’t put a price on the injury but says he seeks at least $25,000 in damages.
