Chargers assistant McNulty returns to Rutgers as coordinator

PISCATAWAY, N.J. (AP) After spending the last nine years as an NFL assistant coach, John McNulty wanted a more from football than either leading five or six players a season or helping to plan different aspects of the offense. He felt he had more to offer.

McNulty got the job he wanted by going back to the college ranks on Tuesday, leaving the Los Angeles Chargers for a second stint as the offensive coordinator at Rutgers.

"I think it gets back to wanting to lead the group," McNulty said. "I think that is what you miss. I mean you miss calling plays, but that's 12, 14, 15 times a year on Saturdays. But in terms of the leadership role, the motivation and encouragement, the kick in the rear end to the entire group, whatever it might be to the entire group, to lead the staff and make it a place where everyone is comfortable expressing an opinion, that's what I missed."
