The Chargers coaching staff for the 2024 season has officially been set. Jim Harbaugh wasted no time bringing in a laundry list of new coaches from various backgrounds to try and reinvent the culture of the Chargers organization.

There are a lot of talented coaches that are coming over from great organizations that fans can be excited about. This coaching staff looks miles ahead of the staff Brandon Staley put together, which gives the Chargers an ever-so-important key to be a Super Bowl contender.

While the overall coaching staff is solid, there still were some concerning hires that Harbaugh made to his staff. Part of the Harbaugh experience is trusting him to make the right choices with his staff but it is fair to question some hires in particular.

3 members of the Chargers coaching staff that fans should worry about:

Greg Roman, offensive coordinator

Greg Roman was the one name that many fans didn't want to see the team hire as the offensive coordinator. Roman was Harbaugh's OC in San Francisco and most recently was the OC for the Baltimore Ravens before being canned in favor of Todd Monken this past season.

Roman will do wonders to the Chargers' rushing attack, there is no question about that. The Chargers haven't been able to run the ball at all the last two seasons and that has definitely impacted the team's ceiling on offense.

However, the real questions and concerns lie with Justin Herbert and how Roman will be as a play-caller for him specifically. Herbert can move, there is no question, but he is not a run-first quarterback and the Chargers need to lean into his remarkable passing skills before even thinking about making him a mobile quarterback.

If Roman calls the same offense he called in San Francisco, Buffalo and Baltimore then it simply will not work.
