The San Diego Chargers have their mindset on one coaching candidate.

The Chargers have their eyes on Indianapolis Colts offensive coordinator Bruce Arians. Arians is the Chargers top choice to replace fired head coach Norv Turner.

The team has been tight lid on their search to replace Turner, but all signs continue to point towards Arians. Arians was in his first year as the offensive coordinator for the Colts after spending 2007 through 2011 as the Pittsburgh Steelers offensive coordinator.

The potential hiring of Arians would be good news for Philip Rivers, who had his worst season since 2007. This season, he had 3,455 yards and 24 touchdowns; both are his lowest since the 2007 season when he threw for 3,152 yards and 21 touchdowns.

Arians has mentored Andrew Luck into a rising star in the league. And he also mentored Ben Roethlisberger during his time with the Steelers.
