SAN DIEGO (AP) - The San Diego Chargers on Tuesday promoted Rich Bisaccia to assistant head coach-special teams and hired Ron Meeks as secondary coach.
Bisaccia, who just completed his first season with the Chargers, helped develop young special teams players, including Richard Goodman, Darrell Stuckey and Andrew Gachkar.
Goodman was fourth in the NFL in kickoff returns and his 105-yard kickoff return for a touchdown on Jan. 1 at Oakland was a team record. Stuckey and Gachkar tied for the team lead with 12 special teams tackles each.
Meeks served as defensive backs with Carolina last season.
