SAN DIEGO (AP) - Rookie coach Mike McCoy takes his San Diego Chargers to face the Arizona Cardinals on Saturday night, and oh how things could have been different.
McCoy, a hot commodity for teams seeking fresh coaches last season, was intrigued by the Cardinals.
The Cardinals, after firing Ken Whisenhunt, were interested in McCoy but he chose the Chargers.
Bruce Arians, who eventually replaced Whisenhunt, was scheduled for an interview with the Chargers before San Diego interviewed McCoy and became smitten with him.
Whisenhunt interviewed for the Chargers' coaching vacancy and ended up as San Diego's offensive coordinator.
All this serves as a backdrop to the third exhibition game for both teams. Starters are expected to play extended stints, with the Chargers seeking their first summer win.
