I think this is more about taking the best opportunity available and also proving himself again by getting San Diego's offense and Rivers going again. A head coaching opportunity will probably present itself again.
Yeah you're an OC that needs to find a job. You know how you perform will affect how you are considered for other positions going forward. So far he has interviewed for the team that has Manning and Rivers - two QB's who have shown they can be at least decent. The Philly interview was for a head coaching position, which most coaches will accept crappier circumstances for if it means the pay grade and prestige bump.
