Wilks promoted

Posted Feb 17, 2011

Steve Wilks, entering his third season with the Chargers, has been promoted to assistant head coach-secondary.

SAN DIEGO – Steve Wilks, the Chargers’ secondary coach the last two seasons, has been promoted to assistant head coach-secondary by Head Coach Norv Turner.

“Steve has done an outstanding job with our secondary since he’s been here and now we’re going to be asking even more of him,” Turner said.

Said Wilks: “I’m excited about the opportunity. It’s a chance for me to grow and expand my abilities and gain valuable experience.”

San Diego’s pass defense has vastly improved with Wilks as secondary coach. The year prior to his arrival, the Chargers ranked 31st in the NFL against the pass. In 2009, Wilks’ first season with the team, the Bolts improved 20 spots to rank 11th. The Chargers led the NFL in 2010 in both pass defense and total defense.

The opponent’s passer rating against San Diego’s defense in 2010 was the league’s fourth-lowest (76.2), and the Chargers allowed the fifth-fewest touchdown passes in the NFL (18).
