Chargers hire Ken Whisenhunt as offensive coordinator

Union-Tribune - [Full Article]

The Chargers have a new offensive coordinator, and it's the old one, sources said Wednesday. Ken Whisenhunt is back after having spent 2013 in San Diego. The team finished with the NFL's fifth-ranked offense that year. Notably, the Chargers ran the football with relative consistency, something that's proven a struggle in the two seasons since Whisenhunt left to become the Titans' head coach. He was relieved from his duties in Tennessee last November.

Last week, the Chargers moved on from Frank Reich, Whisenhunt's successor.

Fantasy Impact: 

Whisenhunt has had an up-and-down record running offenses in the NFL, but his last stint in San Diego went very well. Interestingly, he's had much more success from a statistical perspective as a coordinator than he has as a head coach. In four seasons as an OC, his offenses have average ranking of 11.0 in points scored. In eight years as a head coach, that average falls to 20.0.
