1) What will be your first order of business AFTER hiring a new head coach?
Thursday January 10, 2013 12:00 Jonathan
Thanks for having me here. After we get the HC hired, we will begin retaining and hiring assistant coaches. After that we will evaluate the roster hard and get ready for the Senior Bowl.

What are the intangibles that you think make a good coach, and the intangibles that are needed to win the SuperBowl?
Thursday January 10, 2013 12:02 Tom Cameron
Hi Tom. We are looking for a leader as our HC who can teach his philosophy and scheme well, communicate with the front office and coaches clear and concisely, and motivate our players to play at their best in the most critical times.

Welcome to SD Mr. Telesco! What was your favorite or most memorable part of your interview to become GM?
Thursday January 10, 2013 12:04 Danny
Hello Danny. Well, the best part was when Dean Spanos asked me if I was ready to be the next General Manager of the San Diego Chargers. The answer was "Yes!"

Hi Tom. Welcome to the Chargers. What are your views on a draft philosophy, Biggest need v. Best player available
Thursday January 10, 2013 12:06 Steffan
Steffan, we have always said that the best possible scenario is when on our draft board the need line equals the best player line. If the best player on the board happens to be one of our top needs, perfect. However, we will not reach for player not rated as high in order to fill needs. Very good question. Thanks!

What style of play does a team under Tom Telesco aim to accomplish?
Thursday January 10, 2013 12:08 Antonio
I've always been taught that smart, fast, and physical can play in any scheme for any coach.

The people of San Diego have been so nice and welcoming. I can't wait to get settled down.

Thanks for your time today. I wish I could stay longer but we are in the process of finding our next head coach. Thanks!
