Jim Harbaugh was noncommittal Thursday about keeping the Los Angeles Chargers' coaches while setting championship expectations for a team that has never won a Super Bowl.
"It needs to be multiple, multiple championships," Harbaugh declared at his first press conference as Chargers coach. "
"We are going to be humble. Humble, hungry. But that is our goal. Our mission is to provide first-class service to our customers while also winning several championships.
Harbaugh noted that during one of his first meetings with the Chargers, owner Dean Spanos stated that he was "starving" to win.
That hit home with Harbaugh.Spanos chose Harbaugh after interviewing 15 candidates, bringing him back to the organization where he played quarterback for two seasons (1999-2000).
They were 5-12 last season and are expected to be $54 million over the salary cap next season, according to ESPN's Roster Management System.
That means Harbaugh may be without some of the team's best and highest-paid players.
Harbaugh confirmed that these issues, as well as the NFL combine and free agency, are on the schedule. He intends to quickly return the Chargers to NFL relevance by implementing the culture he has established elsewhere.
