The Chargers released team captains -- and Mike McCoy had no idea
Mike McCoy's team named its captains for 2015. But no one told the Chargers head coach, apparently.
A deleted tweet from Chargers media revealed that Philip Rivers, King Dunlap, Eric Weddle, corey Liuget, and Darrell Stuckey were named captains for the upcoming season. That's "false information" according to McCoy.
Mike McCoy said team tweet about captains was "false information." Said team didn't pick captains yet. Does it first wk of season. #chargers— Annie Heilbrunn (@annieheilbrunn) August 18, 2015
With Philip Rivers locked in, now seemed like the perfect time to announce team leaders. Instead, McCoy backtracked.
The team's Twitter account ran a correction to absolve the issue once and for all.
