    "Ted is one of the NFL's most respected defensive minds," said Head Coach Norv Turner. "And his experience and success with the 3-4 defense will help us maintain continuity on that side of the ball and grow and get better."

    A veteran of 22 seasons as an NFL coach, Cottrell is a proven teacher and leader of winning defenses. His background includes a strong foundation in the 3-4 attacking-style defense that helped the Chargers lead the NFL in sacks in 2006. Since becoming a coordinator in 1998, Cottrell has had seven players record seasons of at least 10 sacks.
