Ben Herbert

Executive Director of Player Performance


Ben Herbert brings a progressive and data-driven approach as executive director of player performance for the Los Angeles Chargers. He spent the last six seasons at the University of Michigan (2018-23), helping develop 22 eventual NFL draft picks, including six first-round selections. Prior to his time with the Wolverines, Herbert spent five seasons at the University of Arkansas (2013-17) and 11 seasons at his alma mater, the University of Wisconsin (2002-12). Over his career, Herbert worked with 95 eventual NFL Draft choices, including 12 first-round selections. Herbert was a four-year letterman for the Badgers, playing along the defensive line and helping Wisconsin to a pair of Rose Bowl Championships. He still holds the program record for tackles for loss and sacks in a Bowl game.
