The Chargers official site reports that Falcons defensive coordinator Mike Zimmer will meet with Chargers officials today to become the fifth candidate to interview for the vacant head coaching position.
Zimmer will meet with Chargers owner and president Dean Spanos, general manager A.J. Smith, and executive vice president Ed McGuire.
The previous four candidates that have interviewed include 49ers assistant Mike Singletary and offensive coordinator Norv Turner, Ravens defensive coordinator Rex Ryan, and Bears defensive coordinator Ron Rivera. Both Singletary and Rivera interviewed for the Falcons head coaching position in January, before the job eventually went to Bobby Petrino. Petrino then made Zimmer one of his first hires after seven season as Dallas Cowboys defensive coordinator.
