Promoted to offensive coordinator midway through Los Angeles' 2019 season, Steichen has officially been signed by the team as OC, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported Tuesday. The team later announced the Steichen news along with other staff changes.
Rapoport and NFL Network's Mike Garafolo previously reported the impending move at the onset of the new year.
During a 5-11 2019 season of struggles for the Bolts, Ken Whisenhunt was wished well in his future endeavors by the Chargers after eight weeks with head coach Anthony Lynn turning to Steichen.
Steichen had previously coached quarterbacks and was in his fourth season with the Chargers doing so.
There's likely to be plenty of change for the Chargers in terms of personnel, but Steichen is staying put.
Other coaching additions announced on Tuesday were: James Campen joining the team as offensive line coach, David Diaz-Infante will be assistant offensive line coach, Alfredo Roberts returns as tight ends coach, Mark Ridgley will coach running backs, Rip Scherer is now a senior assistant, Addison Lynch will coach defensive backs and Ryan Milus has been named quality control/defensive, per the team.
