PFW staff
January 3, 2013
Cowboys name Bisaccia special-teams coordinator

Former Chargers special-teams coach Rich Bisaccia has left San Diego to be the special-teams and running backs coach at Auburn, the school announced Thursday.

Bisaccia spent the last 11 seasons in the NFL and the previous two with the Chargers. He was the Buccaneers special-teams coach from 2002-10.

Bisaccia is credited with helping the Chargers turn their coverage teams around after a poor 2010 campaign when he joined the club in ’11.

"Rich is widely regarded as the one of the top special-teams coaches in all of football and has coached several elite running backs, so we're thrilled to have him join our staff," said Auburn head coach Gus Malzahn. "Rich's résumé speaks for itself. He has been a part of some outstanding teams, including a Super Bowl Champion in Tampa Bay. He has coached several running backs and special-teams players that were among the very best in the game at both the collegiate and professional level."
