The ‘Batman and the Robin’ are all set on their way to revolutionize the history of the LA Chargers. Last season was dispiriting for the Chargers, with them ending last in the AFC West. Jim Harbaugh, seizing the reins, has not only brought in hope for the LA fans but also an overhaul in the staff. The best of the coaches around the league are now a part of the Chargers’ staff. Harbaugh’s trusted ones like Jesse Minter, Ben Herbert, and Joe Hortiz are on board with him.

Hence, Hortiz, the general manager of the Chargers is the “Batman to Jim Harbaugh’s robin for the offseason, and I’ll be the Batman in the regular season,” as Harbaugh saidSeems that the Batman of the offseason is ready with his master plan to commence the season with the blockbuster team he has, which he admitted was one reason for him joining the Chargers. Working alongside a magnetic persona like Jim Harbaugh was surely at the top of Hortiz’s list of reasons. However, the other two reasons stood out to the media the most.

Addressing the media, he said, “In Personnel, if you ask any Scout what are the things you want? You want great ownership? Check. You want a great quarterback? Check. So I’m walking into a GM role. If you say I got those three things, you got a chance. You got a chance to be really good. So having that it’s awesome. This is a dream job.” The praise of Dean Spanos and Justin Herbert from Hortiz is a positive thing for the Chargers, especially when the general manager is doing his ‘dream job’.
Well, these two reasons already existed in the previous season as well. Yet Dean Spanos and Justin Herbert could not stop the team from drowning. With Harbaugh’s appearance in the picture, the condition is expected to improve drastically. Moreover, it is expected to improve even further as Harbaugh aims at making more additions to his staff.

Other Michigan staff expected to make the shift

Jordan Strack’s reports came as another shock to Warde Mauel and Sherrone Moore. Before Moore could announce either of the two in-house options, Steve Clickscale and Mike Elston, as the replacement for Jesse Minter, Starck reported that Harbaugh is eyeing them for hiring.
