He oversees several areas, including marketing, sales, communications, digital media, and community relations. 

While the elder Spanos is busy overseeing the team’s day-to-day operations, John Spanos, his younger son, takes on the crucial responsibilities of managing multiple aspects of the team.

From player personnel and coaching to player finance and salary cap, medical, equipment, video, player engagement, and security, John Spanos is the go-to person for ensuring everything runs smoothly behind the scenes.

Moreover, John and his wife, Jodie, live in Corona del Mar with their son, Jack, and daughter, Jade.

Meanwhile, A.G. Spanos’s wife, Susie Kamri, lives with their three sons in Laguna Beach.

Dean Spanos Sued By His Sister

The ongoing legal battle over the management of the Los Angeles Chargers has taken a new turn.

The team’s owner, Dean Spanos, is now facing a lawsuit filed by his sister, Dea Spanos Berberian.

The suit alleges “misogynistic” behavior, “self-dealing,” and repeated “breaches of fiduciary duty.”

Berberian’s lawyers want to acquire sole control of a family trust that constitutes more than one-third of the team’s ownership.

Furthermore, the lawsuit seeks to suspend and supplant Spanos as a co-trustee while also looking to recover any unstated fiscal damages awarded to Berberian.

Also, according to the lawsuit, Berberian accuses her brothers, Dean and Michael Spanos, of:

“Repeatedly acting out of their deeply-held misogynistic attitudes and sense of entitlement as the men in the family… and to rationalize their pitiable behavior which she believes is intended to teach her that a woman has no rights, no matter what any trust instrument might say.”
