Los Angles Chargers offensive coordinator Ken Whisenhunt removed his name from the Georgia Tech head coaching job, according to ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.
Whisenhunt, who played football for Georgia Tech, withdrew his name from their heading coach search after he decided he wanted to stay with the Chargers. It was reported that he was offered the job with two days to decide, but he clearly wanted to stay at the professional level.

Whisenhunt has had two head coaching gigs in the NFL, leading the Arizona Cardinals for six seasons and a Super Bowl appearance, as well as a brief stint with the Tennessee Titans.
He has had immense success as an offensive coordinator in the league, helping the Pittsburgh Steelers win Super Bowl 40, and has lead the Chargers to an impressive 9-3 record with a playoff appearance on the way.
Whisenhunt was reportedly Georgia Tech's top target, but they will now have to look elsewhere.

Despite the Super Bowl appearance in 2008 and a 10-win season in 2009, Whisenhunt has compiled a head coaching record of 48-71.
Something tells me that he's better off as a coordinator, especially at 56 years old.
