The Chargers hired Brandon Staley as new head coach last weekend, and Monday the club officially announced the newest additions on his staff.

Los Angeles named Joe Lombardi offensive coordinator, Renaldo Hill defensive coordinator and Derius Swinton II special teams coordinator.

Grandson of Hall of Fame coach, Vince Lombardi, Joe was with the Saints for a combined 10 seasons, both as an offensive assistant and quarterbacks coach. He served as an offensive coordinator for the Lions for two stints.

“I’m just so excited about Joe coming here. The wealth of knowledge and experience he possesses, having operated within one of the premier offensive systems in the NFL for over a decade,” Staley said about Lombardi.

Hill, a former NFL safety of 10 seasons, has been coaching in league for three seasons, one with the Dolphins (assistant defensive backs coach) and two with the Broncos (defensive backs coach).

“He’s a guy that I have a great personal relationship with and a guy that just has a tremendous background to help our team be successful,” Staley said about Hill.

Swinton has an extensive background as a special teams coach. He previously served as the Cardinals’ assistant special teams coach. Swinton has worked as the 49ers’ special teams coordinator in addition to coaching with the Bears, Broncos, Chiefs and Rams.

“Derius has tremendous command, is a great teacher and has the ability to see the game on offense, defense and through the kicking game. I can’t emphasize enough what a great teacher he is, fundamentally, from both offensive and defensive perspectives,” Staley said on Swinton.
