The Chargers didn’t make a change at head coach this offseason, but Mike McCoy’s staff did get a serious renovation at the end of a 4-12 campaign.

There will be 11 coaches in positions they weren’t in last season, nine of whom are new to the organization. The last two of those new arrivals were announced on Tuesday with the team naming Tommy Rees as offensive assistant and Marquice Williams as special teams assistant.

Rees will be familiar to Notre Dame fans after starting 30 games at quarterback for the Fighting Irish between 2010 and 2013. He played with several Chargers, including college roommate and current center Chris Watt.

“It is definitely a different type of situation,” Watt said, via the team’s website.  “I don’t even know how to go about describing it!  But when we are on the field, it will be all business and very professional.  I think it will be fine, but it is definitely strange and a little different.”

Rees was a graduate assistant at Northwestern last season. Williams has interned with the Bears and Lions and spent the last four seasons at the University of South Dakota.

    Everyone knew coaching was in Rees future. His dad coached in the NFL for many years.

    This amounts to rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic.

    There’s no hope for this joke of a franchise.

    What’s all the fuss about? It’s not like anyone is going to bother going to games so why not just pack up and leave town already?
