The “coupon god” is going to be finding deals for a few more years
It appears as though the team’s recent success in the Draft and the somewhat bland, but effective Free Agency work, has been enough to earn GM Tom Telesco a multi-year extension in LA.
The Chargers signed GM Tom Telesco to a multi-year contract extension at the completion of last season. It’s the third deal for Telesco while with the Chargers. He signed a 3-year contract extension before the start of the 2015 season due to expire at the end of the this year.

Telesco and his staff have turned in a few successful offseasons in a row now and the Chargers find themselves with a healthy amount of young talent and in a position to make a couple runs at a title shot here in the twilight of QB Philip Rivers’ career. The team has decided to reward TT’s work by giving him a multi-year extension to keep him around a little longer.
No official length on the contract has been been released yet but I think that his work the last couple of years has been effective and efficient. Sure, he has probably held on to some guys a little too long (Jahleel Addae) and taken a few swings that missed (Derek Cox), but he has been on a roll lately and the team is better for it.
