Chargers Fire Equipment Manager After 39 Years With Franchise; Waited Until After He Moved To Los Angeles

Bob Wick

Bob Wick, the longtime equipment manager for the Los Angeles Chargers, originally got his start with the franchise as a ball boy way back in 1979. Soon after, he became an assistant equipment manager and in 2000 was named the equipment manager. Nine years later, he was named the NFL Equipment Manager of the Year. Yes, that is a thing.

On Thursday, his tenure with the franchise came to an end as the team decided to fire him.

When the Chargers bolted from San Diego to move to Los Angeles, Wick moved with them, along with his family to Orange County to help the transition to a new market.

A reason for the move was not provided and people were understandably upset about the franchise making such a drastic move after the loyal employee moved from one city to another.
