List Of San Diego Chargers Head Coaches

The San Diego Chargers are a professional American football team based in San Diego, California. They are members of the Western Division of the American Football Conference (AFC) in the National Football League (NFL). There have been 14 coaches in San Diego Chargers franchise history, including Sid Gillman, who coached the Los Angeles Chargers' first and only season in 1960 before the team's move to San Diego, California in 1961. Gilman is also the only Hall of Fame coach from the Chargers franchise.

Coach Gillman and the Chargers won one AFL title in 1963 and reached the AFL playoffs five times and the AFL Championship four times before joining the NFL in 1970 as part of the AFL-NFL Merger. In the 34 years since then, the Chargers have made 10 trips to the playoffs and four appearances in the AFC Championship game.

The most recent coach for the Chargers was Norv Turner, who in 2007 led the team to a win in the playoffs for the first time since Bobby Ross in 1992. Turner was fired on December 31, 2012, after six seasons in charge of the franchise. Marty Schottenheimer, the head coach before Turner, led the team into the playoffs in 2004 and 2006, but they were unsuccessful both times. Five coaches—Gillman, Don Coryell, Ross, Schottenheimer, and Turner—have led the Chargers into the playoffs.
