some basic info

February, Chargers Head Coach Norv Turner promoted Wilks to Assistant Head Coach-Secondary.

San Diego’s pass defense has vastly improved with Wilks as its secondary coach. Prior to his arrival, the Chargers ranked 31st in the NFL against the pass. In 2009, his first year with the team, the Bolts improved 20 spots to rank 11th, before leading the NFL in 2010 in 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).

Wilks came to the Chargers from Chicago where in 2006, the Bears led the NFL in takeaways, won the NFC Championship and appeared in Super Bowl XLI.

A head and assistant coach on the collegiate level for 11 seasons, Wilks was named Division II Defensive Coordinator of the Year in 1998 by American Football Quarterly magazine after Savannah State led the nation in total defense.

A native of Charlotte, North Carolina, Wilks played collegeiately at Appalachian State, finishing his career with 103 tackles, four interceptions and four blocked kicks. He played on NCAA I-AA playoff teams in 1989 and ’91. After graduation, Wilks went to training camp with the Seattle Seahawks in 1992, and after his release from Seattle, signed with the Charlotte Rage of the Arena Football League for the ’93 season.

Wilks and wife, Marcia, have two daughters, Marissa and Melanni, and a son, Steven James.

welcome to the family Steve

    • You're looking at a false reality. You're creating a narrative that doesn't truly exist, that a person is only defined by their race and nothing else. Your views on people are just as bad as those who created the Jim Crow Laws, spit on people and look down on them based on race only, and enslaved millions because of the color of their skin; never once considering them how they are as a person. You see them based on their race instead of how they are as people. Ignore the fact that America has elected a black president twice in a row for an 8 year presidency. Ignore the plentiful amount of successful blacks in plenty of fields of career fields who are wealthy and living a productive and successful lifestyle. Ignore the dominance of black athletes in sports. Look at them as people, and how their personality and characteristics got them to where they are instead of race. The way they got to where they are is completely justified and has nothing to do with race.
    • He's the most intriguing prospect of the draft.  If he can be a true T with the ability to not only play both spots but to excel in them we may have selected one of the steals of the draft.  Sucks we won't have that 5th yr option but I'd welcome that problem later to have a true LT/RT for years to come.
    • I 100% support his politics. I 100% hate him as a QB...along with Wilson Luck and Ryan. I want him to succeed as I like having NFL adversaries for Cam #TeamCam
