Chargers officially name Derrick Ansley as defensive coordinator

The Chargers named Derrick Ansley the team’s next defensive coordinator on Monday.

Ansley fills the void after the departure of former defensive coordinator Renaldo Hill, who the Dolphins hired as their pass game coordinator and defensive backs coach.

Ansley spent the past two seasons as Los Angeles’ defensive backs coach. Before that, he spent two years (2019-20) as the defensive coordinator and defensive backs coach at the University of Tennessee.

Ansley spent the 2018 season as the Raiders’ defensive backs coach. Before that, Ansley was the defensive backs coach at Alabama (2016–17), Kentucky (2013–15), and Tennessee (2012). In addition, he was a graduate assistant at Alabama in 2010 and 2011.
