Defensive line coach Wayne Nunnely became the fifth San Diego Chargers assistant to be dismissed when the team said Tuesday his contract will not be renewed.
Nunnely had been with San Diego for 12 seasons. The Chargers
hired Don Johnson to replace Nunnely, and Steve Wilks to replace
fired secondary coach Bill Bradley.
Johnson and Wilks are former Chicago Bears assistants who are
being reunited with Chargers defensive coordinator Ron Rivera. They
worked under Rivera in Chicago in 2006 when the Bears made it to
the Super Bowl before losing to Indianapolis.
Johnson spent the last two years as the Oakland Raiders'
defensive tackles coach. Wilks was fired last week after three
seasons with the Bears.
