Panel to consider 2 temporary NFL teams in LA Coliseum

LOS ANGELES (AP) The San Diego Chargers are making plans for a new practice compound in Southern California as they consider a possible move to the Los Angeles market this year.

A team statement says the 5-acre parcel in the Orange County city of Santa Ana would be the site of its interim headquarters and training facilities.

Earlier this month, the NFL cleared the way for the St. Louis Rams to move to a planned stadium in Inglewood, just outside LA. The NFL has given the Chargers an option to join them.

The Chargers submitted plans this week for the training site.

Meanwhile, a government board is poised to consider a proposal to allow two NFL teams to temporarily share the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum with the USC Trojans this year.

The Coliseum Commission took preliminary steps Thursday to consider amending USC's current lease, which allows only one NFL team.
