The San Diego Chargers fired head coach Marty Schottenheimer on Monday, despite him leading the team to a 14-2 record in the regular season. The Chargers' 24-21 home loss to the New England Patriots in the playoffs, combined with a strained relationship between Schottenheimer and general manager A.J. Smith, ultimately led to the ousting of the head coach. The move comes less than a month after Schottenheimer turned down a one-year extension for 2008 but agreed to stay with the team through the 2007 season.
