Steve Mariucci responded to a report that he would be interested in the San Diego Chargers' head coaching job if it became available by saying on NFL Network he will not comment on the issue.

The possible interest by Mariucci was reported by Sports Illustrated's Peter King on Sunday during NBC's "Football Night In America."

Mariucci has been out of coaching since been being fired by the Detroit Lions in 2005. He is currently an analyst for NFL Network.

"I would never comment on a coaching job where there's a coach in place and the coach down there in San Diego happened to be a very good friend of mine, Norv Turner," Mariucci said on NFL Network, according to NFL.com. "There's no way I would ever discuss this right now, I don't know where it comes from. Let's just stop the nonsense, OK? Please."

With those comments, Mariucci did not deny having an interest in coaching again, but he refused to comment on a job that's currently occupied.
