It’s a cold world out there. According to several LA Chargers beat writers, the team fired longtime equipment manager Bob Wick, who had been with the team since 1979, just months after he moved from his home in San Diego to relocate to be near the new team’s new facility in Los Angeles.
Apparently, no reason given. great guy and he worked his ass off.
Several local media members and many former Chargers players expressed their disappointment regarding the team’s decision on social media.
Bob Wick is one of the GREAT people who I came across while covering the @chargers in San Diego and to hear he was let go today, sickens me!

I don’t know the reason but am disappointed beyond words that Bob Wick has been released after 38 yrs of service to the Charger organization

What?!? How do you let go of Bob Wick? He is the best dude, and he moved up the Coast already?

The Chargers definitely get my “Shit of the Week” award.
