Turner names tight ends coach

Posted Jan 21, 2011

Jason Michael worked under Head Coach Norv Turner and has five years of NFL experience with the Raiders, Jets and 49ers.

SAN DIEGO – The Chargers named Jason Michael tight ends coach Friday.

Michael, who finished the season as quarterbacks coach with the San Francisco 49ers, is the third addition to Head Coach Norv Turner’s staff this offseason.

“I’m excited about the opportunity to add Jason to our staff,” Turner said. “He brings a good, balanced offensive background. He’s worked with tight ends and he’s worked with quarterbacks.”

Michael spent two seasons with the 49ers and became quarterbacks coach on Sept. 27, 2010, after serving as offensive assistant. He coached tight ends for the New York Jets in ’07 and the University of Tennessee in ’08. He has coached in the NFL for five seasons.

Michael served as an offensive quality control coach and video assistant for the Oakland Raiders in ’05 while Turner was head coach.

“He’s worked with our system at both places he’s been, the Jets and the 49ers, so that made him a very good fit,” Turner said.

A former quarterback, Michael produced more than 2,200 yards of total offense as a senior at Western Kentucky in ’02, leading the Hilltoppers to the Division I-AA National Championship.
