CLICK HERE FOR A SPECIAL FOUR PART INTERVIEW WITH McCOY Here is part one of the series dedicated to head coach Mike McCoy. McCoy was considered the hottest candidate on the market, and pundits are declaring his hire to be a major coup for the Bolts as they usher in a new era of Chargers football in 2013. But just who is Mike McCoy? When McCoy turned eight-years old, he was finally old enough to play football, but once again he played with his brother and those a few years older than him. McCoy started playing sports when he was five years old in his hometown of Novato, California in the shadow of San Francisco by playing pee wee baseball in a league that his older brother snuck him into so he could play with those a few years older than him. His football career started at running back but it didn’t take long for him to make the move to quarterback which for the rest of his playing career, save one year in middle school, was where he stayed put.
