DC Defenders Head Coach Pep Hamilton New Chargers QB Coach

According to this report from Daniel Popper of The Athletic, the Los Angeles Chargers have hired former DC Defenders head coach Pep Hamilton to be their new QB coach. The DC Defenders finished with a 3-2 record before the season was canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

He has served in multiple roles for various NFL and College teams over the past two decades. Most recently he was the assistant head coach and passing game coordinator for Jim Harbaugh with the Michigan Wolverines.

Before working with Harbaugh, Hamilton was the Cleveland Browns’ assistant head coach and QB coach back in 2016. He spent three seasons as the offensive coordinator for Andrew Luck and the Indianapolis Colts.

Hamilton played his college football at Howard University where he played quarterback from 1993-96. 

His new role in the NFL will be to help rookie No. 6 overall pick Justin Herbert transition from the college game to the NFL.
