This is a move that most of us were surprised didn't happen quite a while ago. After several drinking and driving offenses and him writing tons of different prescriptions to himself, i'm just as surprised that his medical license didn't get taken away that he didn't get fired. This offseason, the NFLPA requested him to be fired, and finally he stepped down because of "injury". So long Chao...you probably wont be missed...

Also just because it was me, i asked Merriman about him on twitter, i asked about his experience with Chao...his response was...."well I liked him as a person, lets leave it at that"

Glad he's gone, but still disturbing that it took so long.

That guy was a joke to the NFL. Good for the Chargers and entire league that he is gone.

Ciao Chao.

When I know the team doctors name then they should't be the team doctor.

I'm glad, read so many negative articles about Mr. Malpractice. This was the last bad part along with AJ and Norv that had to go.

Possibly the best move this offseason?

"When I know the team doctors name then they should't be the team doctor." totally agree there.

Was it him that OK'd a blatantly concussion-addled Kris Dielman back onto the field in 2011 at New York? Because I remember being utterly livid at that crap

About damn time!

Can't think of anyone who has done such an awful job with his professional duties and still kept his job for years.... he shouldn't even have a license!!

Not that anyone here was going to be a character reference for him:
