Los Angeles Chargers hire Renaldo Hill to be defensive coordinator

The Los Angeles Chargers have found their new defensive coordinator.

Renaldo Hill is expected to become the defensive coordinator for the Chargers, according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero. Hill was previously the Denver Broncos defensive backs coach.

Hill's hiring was made official by the team on Monday afternoon, as the Chargers also announced the hiring of Joe Lombardi as offensive coordinator and Derius Swinton as special teams coordinator.

Hill, 42, replaces Gus Bradley, who joined Jon Gruden and the Las Vegas Raiders in the same capacity.

A 2001 seventh-round draft choice out of Michigan State, Hill is a former strong safety who played 10 seasons in the league -- for the Arizona Cardinals, Oakland Raiders, Miami Dolphins and Denver Broncos. In 141 games, Hill recorded 19 interceptions.

Hill will be reunited with new Chargers head coach Brandon Staley, who was the outside linebackers coach in Denver in 2019.
