Ken Whisenhunt, believed to be the frontrunner for the Detroit Lions' coaching job, spent at least the first part of Monday in San Diego, finishing up his work for the season as the Chargers' offensive coordinator.
Chargers coach Mike McCoy confirmed during a news conference that Whisenhunt flew back with the team following Sunday's playoff loss at Denver and was conducting the familiar season-ending "exit interviews" with players Monday morning.
"Says a lot about him," McCoy told reporters.
Much was made about Whisenhunt interviewing last week with the Lions (Thursday), Tennessee Titans (Friday) and Cleveland Browns (Saturday) before Sunday's game.
