LOS ANGELES - Chris Beatty, who coached football in Hampton Roads at both the high school and college level, is headed to the National Football League.

Beatty will be joining the Los Angeles Chargers as wide receivers coach, as originally reported by Adam Rittenberg.

From 2003-05, Beatty was head coach at Landstown High School, where he had a 40-2 record and was named the Virginia 3A Coach of the Year in 2004 after winning the state title. Prior to Landstown, he was head coach at Salem High School from 2001-02.

Beatty has held coaching roles at nine different colleges. During the 2006 season, he was Hampton's offensive coordinator and coached quarterbacks and wide receivers. His offense ranked No. 7 nationally in scoring and the Pirates averaged 34.7 points per game on the way to a Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference championship.

During the 2015 season, Beatty was the University of Virginia's assistant head coach and running backs coach.

Beatty was the University of Pittsburgh's wide receivers coach during the 2019 season and recruited four of the top eight high school football prospects in Hampton Roads to play at Pitt.
