SAN DIEGO (Wire Service) - Denver Broncos offensive coordinator Mike McCoy was hired today as head coach of the San Diego Chargers, replacing the fired Norv Turner.

Turner was fired along with general manager A.J. Smith one day after the team completed its third consecutive non-playoff season. McCoy, 40, will be the 15th head coach in Chargers history.

McCoy interviewed for the job Monday, just two days after the Broncos were eliminated from the NFL playoffs by the Baltimore Ravens, according to Chargers Advertisement

McCoy oversaw the Broncos offense for four seasons, adapting an option-oriented attack in 2011 for quarterback Tim Tebow and a passing game this year for veteran quarterback Peyton Manning. He held a variety of assistant coaching jobs for the Carolina Panthers before his stint in Denver.

The native of Novato, in Marin County, was a standout quarterback at the University of Utah.

The Chargers last week hired Tom Telesco, also 40, away from the Indianapolis Colts to replace Smith as general manager.
