New Chargers head coach Jim Harbaugh says he wants to start off his tenure in Los Angeles by living in an RV next to the water or Disneyland.

Yes, you read that correctly. The man who just signed a five-year, $80million deal to leave the Michigan Wolverines and sign for the Chargers, after leading his alma mater to a National Championship, now wants to live in a mobile home rather than one of the countless luxurious mansions of southern California.

‘I want to drive my RV out and go to a trailer park down by the water or by Disneyland, the two that I’ve researched that are close to the facility,’ said Harbaugh, who was unveiled in LA earlier this week. 

‘I want to Jim Rockford it for the next couple months until we move to the new facility. I have that thought going through my head.’

What may be even more shocking is that Harbaugh’s wife, Sarah, has apparently signed off on his unorthodox idea, although it was not specified whether she would be joining him in the RV.

In less bizarre news from his introductory press conference, Harbaugh also said he is planning to build his around the team’s most talented players – such as quarterback Justin Herbert and safety Derwin James Jr.

He even went as far as to refer to Herbert as a ‘crown jewel in the National Football League.’

‘The thing that’s hitting me is enormous talent. I’m waking up real early in the morning these days like “I gotta bring it,” said Harbaugh.

‘I gotta bring my A game. I gotta get a coaching staff hired that’s worthy of coaching Justin, Derwin, and all the guys.

‘I’m really thinking about my accountability and making sure that I’m ready.’ 

Outside of building around Herbert and other key players, Harbaugh and Co will have to clean up the team’s salary cap situation – which might see several big names depart LA.

The Chargers are currently $44m over the salary cap and could part ways with big names like Khalil Mack or Keenan Allen in order to fix their finical situation.
