Bisaccia, who just completed his first season with the Chargers, helped develop young special-teams players, including Richard Goodman, Darrell Stuckey and Andrew Gachkar.

Goodman was fourth in the NFL in kickoff returns, and his 105-yard runback for a touchdown Jan. 1 at Oakland was a team record. Stuckey and Gachkar tied for the team lead with 12 special-teams tackles each.

Meeks served as the Carolina Panthers' defensive backs coach this season.
