San Diego Chargers will not exercise option to move

Los Angeles will not welcome the Chargers in 2013.

The San Diego Chargers are sticking around.

The Chargers will not move to Los Angeles in 2013 and will stay in San Diego, according to Sam Farmer of the Los Angeles Times.

However, that's just for 2013. Anything could change down the road, Farmer writes:

The development is not a guarantee that there will be no NFL in L.A. next season - although there has been no recent movement on that front - nor is it a guarantee the Chargers will never relocate. They have to make the same decision whether to stay next season, and each year after unless there's a change in their lease terms.

If a team does move to Los Angeles for the 2013 season, according to Farmer, it would play in the Rose Bowl or L.A. Coliseum while a stadium is built.

Meanwhile, the Chargers are trying to find "venue solutions in the San Diego area," according to Farmer.

While the location might not be changing next season, the look of the team will take somewhat of a dramatic shift. The Chargers hired Tom Telesco to be their new general manager and Denver Broncos offensive coordinator Mike McCoy to be their new head coach. Telesco signed with the Chargers after spending 15 years with the Indianapolis Colts.
