LAS VEGAS — The Los Angeles Chargers announced Wednesday that dental clinic Dr. Paul Pate will move to Las Vegas to become the new dental clinic.
The Chargers announced the news at a news conference, where the team’s medical staff also confirmed the news.
Pate, the team�s longtime director of dental services, will be part of a team that will be operated by Dr. Robert N. Williams and his team at a facility in West Las Vegas.
The announcement came just days after the Chargers announced they had hired a new head coach.
Numerous other team officials and executives, including owner Dean Spanos, had been discussing a potential move to the NFL’s West Coast, but those discussions had stalled until Wednesday�s announcement.
The decision to relocate the dental clinic comes after the NFL recently announced it would hold a series of meetings in Las of about a dozen teams to discuss their next steps.
The NFL is expected to make an announcement in the coming weeks about the teams moving.
