Brandon Staley will be bringing at least one Rams assistant with him down the 405 to the Chargers.
NFL media’s Ian Rapoport and Tom Pelissero report Rams assistant head coach/linebackers coach Joe Barry is expected to join Staley’s cross-town staff as defensive passing game coordinator/linebackers coach.
Barry has been with the Rams since Sean McVay arrived as head coach in 2017. A USC alum, he previously was Washington’s defensive coordinator from 2015-2016 and the Chargers’ linebackers coach from 2011-2014.
Staley and Barry spent a season together with the Rams, with Staley as the club’s defensive coordinator in 2020.
