The list of changes to the San Diego Chargers coaching staff continues.
According to Michael Gehlken of the San Diego Union-Tribune, the Chargers will not retain strength and conditioning coach Jeff Hurd and assistant strength coach Vernon Stephens.
Head coach Mike McCoy confirmed Monday that the Chargers will look to hire a new strength and conditioning staff.
Hurd and Stephens joined Norv Turner’s staff with the Chargers in 2007. McCoy told Gehlken the moves weren’t related to any previous injury issues the team has endured. San Diego had 17 players on injured reserve at the end of this season.
“I’ve had a plan in place for who I would hire for a staff for a long time,” McCoy said.
