The Chargers’ coaching staff continues to take shape.

Los Angeles is hiring former University of Pittsburgh wide receivers coach Chris Beatty in the same position, according to ESPN’s Adam Rittenberg.

Beatty worked with head coach Brandon Staley at Northern Illinois in 2007. He also reunites with recently hired defensive coordinator Renaldo Hill, who was a defensive backs coach at Pitt for three seasons.

This is the first time Beatty has coached at the NFL level. Before coming to Pitt, he was wide receivers coach, co-offensive coordinator and associate head coach at Maryland for three seasons. He was also an assistant at Virginia, Wisconsin, Illinois, Vanderbilt, West Virginia and Northern Illinois.

Beatty has coached the likes of Percy Harvin, Stedman Bailey, Tavon Austin and Jordan Matthews.
