San Diego Chargers’ head coach Mike McCoyhas finalized the coaching staff today as he added a tight ends coach, a running back coach, and an assistant strength and conditioning coach.
Jason Michael has been brought back as the Chargers’ tight ends coach. Going into his third season on San Diego’s coaching staff, Michael is looking to add to the success that the position has had with Antonio Gates and branch out to the other players on the roster. The other tight ends that he’ll be coaching are veteran Randy McMichael, Dante Rossario and second-year man Ladarious Green.
