In an opinion that should surprise no one, Kansas City Chiefs star Travis Kelce has no interest in the Los Angeles Chargers possibly bringing legendary coach Bill Belichick to the AFC West.
Following a pathetic showing in Week 15 against the Las Vegas Raiders, Chargers owner Dean Spanos had seen enough in 2023 and fired head coach Brandon Staley and general manager Tom Telesco. It was a move that had been rumored for some time and allowed the organization to begin its head coach search in earnest.
Earlier this week, it was reported that the head coach opening for LA is one of the most desirable jobs in the league among potential candidates. Due to the ability to work with a legitimate franchise quarterback like Justin Herbert.
While they should have first dibs on every top coach candidate, the organization really needs to nail the hiring so it can finally bring a championship to the franchise for the first time since it entered the league back in 1960. That is why there has been speculation the Chargers could target iconic coach Bill Belichick if his tenure with the Patriots does come to an end after this season — as many assume.
Travis Kelce hopes Los Angeles Chargers hire ‘some jabroni’ head coach in 2024
The idea of Belichick taking his talents to Los Angeles was the topic of conversation during a recent edition of the “New Heights” podcast hosted by Eagles star Jason Kelce and his brother, Chiefs great Travis Kelce. Kelce of course is not at all rooting for the success of rivals the Chargers and had a hilarious take on the idea of Belichick coming to the AFC West.
“Can we get like a young, never-heard-of college coach?” Travis Kelce said with a laugh. “I don’t want a [expletive] good coach to come in my [expletive] division, dude. Get the [expletive] out of here. I hope they [expletive] hire some jabroni, man.”
Despite a legendary 24-year run in New England, the team’s horrid play in 2023 is expected to lead to Belichick’s firing after this season.
