Report: Chargers hiring Shane Day as quarterbacks coach


The Chargers have made another critical hire for the development of Justin Herbert.

According to a report from ESPN’s Nick Wagoner, L.A. has hired Shane Day to be the club’s quarterbacks coach and passing coordinator. Day was the 49ers quarterbacks coach for the last two seasons.

Day has bounced between college and the pros since 2006. In the NFL, he’s previously served as Chicago’s QBs coach, Washington’s assistant offensive line coach, and Miami’s tight ends coach.

San Francisco has brought back Rich Scangarello to coach QBs. He served in the same role from 2017-2018 under Kyle Shanahan. He was the Broncos offensive coordinator in 2019 and a senior offensive assistant for the Eagles in 2020.

  1. I’m curious what exactly they saw in SF’s QB development over the last couple years that made them think that this is the guy for their franchise QB.

  2. @silverwolf1898 – The fact that the Chargers are too cheap to hire someone better…

  3. Was Pep Hamilton too expensive for cheap Spanos to keep? Curious, cause he’s taking the same job with the Texans.
