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

DB coach Steve Wilks is leaving for Carolina, where he re-joins Ron Rivera. Chargers had already been searching for replacement this week.

So he coached in San Diego, played for App state, and lives in Charlotte. Who couldn't see this coming? NJPanthers could even get this one right.
