New Chargers coach Mike McCoy lauded Whisenhunt's experience with the Cardinals and the Pittsburgh Steelers, saying Whisenhunt has a ``very creative mind'' and will be a great asset for San Diego.
Whisenhunt was fired by the Cardinals on Dec. 31 after six mostly losing seasons but he also led the franchise to its lone Super Bowl appearance in 2009. The Cardinals started the 2012 season 4-0, but lost 11 of 12 to finish 5-11 for the second time in three seasons.
Before coming to Arizona, he was the offensive coordinator for the Steelers from 2004 to 2006, winning a Super Bowl in his final season in Pittsburgh.
