Bio

Sirianni was promoted to coach the quarterbacks, after serving as a quality control assistant on offense last season. He originally joined the Chargers from the Kansas City Chiefs, where he spent 2009-11 as the quality control coach, including his last season in Kansas City (2012) as the Chiefs’ wide receivers coach. In 2010 he worked specifically with the Chiefs’ quarterbacks and helped Matt Cassel achieve All-Pro honors. Sirianni, 32, replaces Frank Reich—who the Bolts recently elevated to offensive coordinator—and is in his 6th NFL season and second with the Chargers.

A native of Jamestown, N.Y., Sirianni won three NCAA Division III National Championships (2000-02) as a wide receiver at the University of Mount Union in Alliance, Ohio. A three-year starter, he earned All-Ohio Athletic Conference honors as a senior after a career-high 13 touchdown catches. Sirianni spent one season (2004) playing arena football in the Atlantic Indoor Football League with the Canton Legends before transitioning into coaching. He coached defensive backs at Mt. Union during the 2004-05 seasons and helped lead the Purple Raiders to another national title in 2005.

Sirianni’s brother, Jay, is the head coach at their alma mater, Southwestern Central High School in Jamestown, N.Y. They won state championships in 2008 and ’09. And brother Mike is the head coach at Washington and Jefferson College in Washington, Pa. A four-time conference coach of the year, Mike’s .816 winning percentage (93-21) is fifth among all active NCAA football coaches (all levels) with at least five years of experience.        

Sirianni and wife, Brett, were married in Missouri in June 2013.
