SAN DIEGO (AP) — Chargers coach Mike McCoy wasn’t interested in talking about Manti Te’o’s past Friday as the second-round pick reported for the team’s three-day rookie camp.

Said McCoy, “We’re moving on. He’s one of ours now and we’re going to win a lot of football games with him.”

The Chargers traded up in the second round of last month’s NFL draft to select the standout linebacker from Notre Dame.

Te’o arrived with plenty of credentials and a back story that has transcended sports.

He slipped out of the opening round of the draft in part because of a poor performance in the national championship game against Alabama.

Te’o also became the butt of national jokes after it was revealed he was duped into an Internet romance with a girlfriend he never met and who never actually existed.
