    Chargers head coach Mike McCoy filled the final three holes on his 2014 coaching staff on Monday, naming Nick Sirianni the quarterbacks coach, Bobby King the assistant linebackers coach, and Shane Steichen the offensive quality control coach.

    Sirianni came to the Chargers last season from Kansas City, where he was the Chiefs' wide receivers coach. He takes over for Frank Reich, who was promoted to offensive coordinator after Ken Whisenhunt left to take the head coaching job in Tennessee.

    King spent the last three seasons in Houston working as an assistant to Texans defensive coordinator Wade Phillips (who had a big influence on current Chargers' defensive coordinator John Pagano).

    Steichen is returning to San Diego after spending last season in Cleveland as the Browns' offensive quality control coach. He was a defensive assistant with the Bolts in 2011 and 2012.

    One thing all of these new coaches should have is a lot of energy. Sirianni is 32 years old (in fact, the new QB coach is just six months older than his starting QB), King is 35 and Steichen is 28.
