SAN DIEGO (CBSMiami/AP) — The Shula family continues to make their mark in the world of football.

Chris Shula, the grandson of former Miami Dolphins coach Don Shula, has been hired by the San Diego Chargers as a defensive quality control coach.

Shula spent last season as defensive coordinator at Division III John Carroll University.

A former linebacker at Miami of Ohio, Shula was assistant linebackers coach at Ball State in 2010 and then spent three seasons as an assistant at Indiana, working primarily with the defensive backs.

He is the son of former NFL coach David Shula.

The Chargers announced the move on Monday.
