Los Angeles Chargers head coach Jim Harbaugh appears to be headed for a California reunion with one of his former San Francisco 49ers stars.

Former All-Pro 49ers linebacker NaVorro Bowman is expected to come aboard Harbaugh’s staff to become the Chargers’ linebackers coach. While no agreement has been made just yet, the two sides are reportedly both motivated to get a deal done.

Bowman most recently served as a defensive analyst for the Maryland Terrapins’ football program.

Bowman was one of the best linebackers in the league throughout the early 2010s. Bowman was named 1st-team All-Pro from 2011 to 2013 before suffering a torn MCL and ACL that kept him on injured reserve throughout the entirety of the 2014 season. Harbaugh served as Bowman’s head coach up until the former’s departure following the 2014 season.

The 49ers tried to trade Bowman in 2017 but ended up releasing him after five games played. He signed with the Oakland Raiders for the rest of 2017 and retired at season’s end.

Bowman tallied 798 tackles and 14.0 sacks throughout in 99 games played. He earned 4 1st-team All-Pro selections and 6 Pro Bowl nods.
