The Chargers made changes to the scouting department, announcing today a new senior director of pro personnel: Louis Clark, who recently held the same position with the Philadelphia Eagles.
Clark spent 16 seasons in the Jaguars' player personnel department as a college scout, assistant director of pro personnel and director of pro personnel before taking a job with the Eagles in 2013 as a pro scout. Prior to that, he was a running backs and special teams coach with the Amsterdam Admirals of NFL Europe (1996) and also coached with the St. Louis Rams that same year, assisting the wide receivers during training camp.
Clark, a Mississippi native, was drafted by the Seattle Seahawks in 1987 and played seven seasons in the NFL as a wide receiver -- six with the Seahawks and one with the Green Bay Packers -- before retiring after the 1993 season. His brother, Dave, played 13 seasons in Major League Baseball and is currently the third base coach of the Detroit Tigers.
The Chargers also made more moves within the player personnel department, naming Regis Eller a pro scout; Travis Lash, combine area scout; Patrick Ryan, area scout; Tyler Lyon, college scouting coordinator; and Chris Hobbs, area scout.
Bryan Cox and Paul Skansi -- longtime scouts with the Chargers -- were let go.
