His stint as an XFL coach may have come to an unceremonious end, but Pep Hamilton is back in the pro coaching ranks.
The former Howard University quarterback has been hired as the new quarterbacks coach for the Los Angeles Chargers, according to The Athletic.
Hamilton served as head coach of the DC Defenders before the league was forced to pause and eventually fold due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Charlotte, NC native has more than two decades of combined pro and college football coaching experience. He coached under Jim Harbaugh at Michigan from 2017-2018. Prior to that, he spent 2016 as the quarterbacks coach with the Cleveland Browns following three seasons as offensive coordinator under Chuck Pagano now.
Now Hamilton will take over a Chargers passing game that tries to replace perennial Pro Bowler Phillip Rivers. Hamilton’s roster of quarterbacks includes veteran Tyrod Taylor and rookie Justin Herbert, who was taken 10th overall in April’s NFL Draft.
