Buffalo Bills’ attack coordinator Brian Daboll has emerged as the favorite for the Los Angeles Chargers head coach position, according to league sources.
Daboll is one of nine candidates to interview for the job, and the Chargers’ team is planning the next steps in their process, which will be affected by the outcome of Saturday night’s playoff match between Ravens and the Bills.
If bills are lost, Daboll can meet the shipper whenever they want and accept their main coaching job if offered. If the bills win, the shipper must wait for Daboll to finish the post-season period before negotiating.
The Daboll fits many of the traits a shipper looks for in their next coach. He is an attack-minded coach, learning under some of the best coaches ever, and has helped raise the bar and produce the midfielders at Beals. Josh Allen. Daboll is expected to do the same for his Los Angeles quarterback Justin Herbert.
Additionally, there is great knowledge. Daboll went to St. Francis High School in Buffalo with Tom Telescu, General Manager of the Chargers. The two played on the same high school football team, with Daboll two notches behind Telesco. Daboll was a solid security and Telesco was a wideband receiver and Cornerback.
From their time together in Buffalo, the two men have taken different paths. Daboll went to learn his career at the feet of Bill Belichick in New England and Nick Saban in Alabama before returning home to Buffalo, where his attack helped the Bills become one of the best in the league.
Telesco moved from Saint Francis to educate under former Colts General Manager Bill Polian before taking on the role of Chargers’ General Manager.
Now Daboll and Telesco could be teammates again on the opposite coast, in Los Angeles, and still trying to win together.
