Chargers new offensive coordinator knows a thing about “Comeback”

Frank Reich is the new Chargers new offensive coordinator. After a season as the team’s quarterbacks coach, Reich officially signed a deal Tuesday to replace Ken Whisenhunt as offensive coordinator. The move was no surprise; Reich had long been the anticipated choice.

Reich is perhaps best known for two incredible comebacks.  His first came in college as a senior with Maryland when he rallied the Terrapins to a 42-40 win over the University of Miami after his team trailed 31-0 for what was then the biggest comeback in collegiate football.  Then, in 1992, he started a Wild Card game against the Houston Oilers and orchestrated the largest comeback in NFL history. Down 35-3 in the third quarter, Reich marched the Bills all the way back for a 41-38 victory.

“With Frank as offensive coordinator, we will be able to maintain continuity on offense and help maximize the production by Philip and the entire unit,” McCoy said. “He has a great feel for the offense we have created and he has been a valuable asset to Philip and all of the quarterbacks.”
