Charles B. Joiner Jr. (born October 14, 1947) is a former American football player who starred in professional football for eighteen seasons, virtually exclusively at the position of wide receiver. He retired with the most career receptions, receiving yards, and games played of any wide receiver in NFL history. He was elected into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1996. Joiner is currently the wide receivers coach of the San Diego Chargers. He was hired by the Chargers on January 23, 2008, following seven seasons in the same coaching position with the Kansas City Chiefs. Joiner graduated from Grambling State University in 1969 and was drafted in the fourth round by the American Football League's Houston Oilers. He started his career as a defensive back, but he made the switch to wide receiver in his rookie year after being carted off the field from a hit by Denver Broncos running back Floyd Little. Joiner played for Houston until 1972, when he was traded to Cincinnati.
