Chargers ownership insists money won't be a limiting factor in coach and GM search

On Monday, John Spanos denied that the Chargers' finances could limit their search for a new general manager and head coach.

The team's president of football operations said, “I want to know where narratives come from,” that he and his father, chairman Dean Spanos, are working harder than ever to win.

"I can tell you there have been no discussions internally about a max [salary for new hires]," Spanos said. “We'll always do what's best for the team.

Spanos noted the Chargers' recent player investments and El Segundo training facility construction as examples of their willingness to spend.

After losing 63-21 at Las Vegas on Friday, the Chargers fired Tom Telesco as general manager and Brandon Staley as head coach.

Telesco and Staley were fired because the Chargers weren't “where we needed to be,” according to Spanos. He refused to explain the moves.

Giff Smith and JoJo Wooden were named interim head coach and general manager for the Chargers to finish the season.
