Shane Day returns to the Chargers as quarterbacks coach after spending the 2023 season with the Houston Texans as a senior offensive assistant. He helped quarterback C.J. Stroud win Offensive Rookie of the Year honors from The Associated Press after eclipsing 4,000 passing yards and totaling 23 touchdown passes to lead the Texans to an AFC South title and a playoff victory. Day spent two seasons with the Bolts as passing game coordinator/quarterbacks coach (2021-22), coaching quarterback Justin Herbert in 2021 to a Pro Bowl selection after setting single-season franchise records in completions (443), passing yards (5,014), passing touchdowns (38) and games with 300-plus passing yards (nine).

Before his time with the Bolts, Day coached quarterbacks for the San Francisco 49ers from 2019-20. He tutored quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo in 2019 to lead the 49ers to Super Bowl LIV and be named NFL Comeback Player of the Year by Sporting News. Day began his NFL coaching career with San Francisco as an offensive quality control coach from 2007-09 before coaching quarterbacks for Chicago (2010-11). After a two-season tenure coaching quarterbacks at the University of Connecticut (2012-13), Day returned to the NFL as an assistant offensive line coach for Washington from 2014-15 and then coaching tight ends for Miami from 2016-18.
