Chargers promote Nick Sirianni to Quarterbacks Coach to work with Rivers
The San Diego Chargers have promoted Nick Sirianni to quarterbacks coach and hired Bobby King as assistant linebackers coach and Shane Steichen as quality control-offense.
Sirianni had been an offensive quality control assistant. He replaces Frank Reich, who was promoted to offensive coordinator.
A native of Jamestown, N.Y., Sirianni won three NCAA Division III National Championships (2000-02) as a wide receiver at the University of Mount Union in Alliance, Ohio. A three-year starter, he earned All-Ohio Athletic Conference honors as a senior after a career-high 13 touchdown catches. Sirianni spent one season (2004) playing arena football in the Atlantic Indoor Football League with the Canton Legends before transitioning into coaching. He coached defensive backs at Mt. Union during the 2004-05 seasons and helped lead the Purple Raiders to another national title in 2005
