Eric Parker to take advantage of NFL’s intern coaching program

Created by Bill Walsh in 1987, the NFL Minority Coaching Fellowship intern coaching program was designed for future minority coaches.  Among the programs’ graduates are Mike Tomlin, Marvin Lewis, and Herm Edwards.

Parker will be assisting Chargers’ WR coach Charlie Joiner as well as the strength and training coach Jeff Hurd after his foot injury of 2 years ago prematurely ended his career.  Parker says he enjoyed coaching at La Mesa’s Helix High School and looks forward to starting the second part of his career with the Chargers.
