The Los Angeles Chargers have fired special teams coordinator Derius Swinton according to Tom Pelissero of NFL Network.

Swinton, a longtime special teams assistant coach in the league, lasted one year as LA's special teams coordinator. The Chargers had the fifth most kickoff returns yards and forced the tenth highest rate of touchbacks on the year. Dustin Hopkins helped stabilize a rocky kicking game as the Chargers ranked ninth in field goal accuracy in 2021. With connections to several teams -- including the Bears and Cardinals -- Swinton will likely get another shot somewhere else in 2022.
