Chargers add three new coaches

Tight ends coach John McNulty will reunite with offensive coordinator Ken Whisenhunt.

The Chargers announced three new hires Tuesday: Tight ends coach John McNulty, assistant offensive line coach Dave DeGuglielmo and assistant secondary coach Chris Harris.

McNulty, in his 14th NFL season, spent time under Chargers offensive coordinator Ken Whisenhunt while the two coached in Arizona and Tennessee. Most recently, McNulty was with the Titans as quarterbacks coach during the 2014-15 seasons.

DeGuglielmo comes to San Diego from New England, where he spent the past two seasons as the team's offensive coordinator, securing a Super Bowl ring along the way (Super Bowl XLIX). Now in his 12th NFL season, DeGuglielmo has also worked for the New York Giants, Miami Dolphins and New York Jets.

Harris replaces Greg Williams, who was recently hired as the defensive backs coach for the Indianapolis Colts. A sixth-round pick by the Chicago Bears in 2005, Harris played eight years in the NFL before transitioning to a coaching career. While in the league, Harris, a former safety, recorded 422 tackles, 16 interceptions and 13 forced fumbles in 101 games (88 starts). He most recently served as defensive quality control coach for the Bears, working primarily with the team's safeties.
