Free agent linebacker Travis LaBoy, who appeared in 14 games with the 49ers in 2010, has agreed to play for the San Diego Chargers, the team announced Friday.

The deal is for two years. No financial terms were disclosed.

LaBoy, the former Marin Catholic star, finished with 21 solo tackles and five sacks last year for San Francisco.

Former 49ers defensive coordinator Greg Manusky now holds that title in San Diego and will be reunited with the pass-rushing specialist. LaBoy will likely be used primarily on passing downs in Manusky's scheme.

LaBoy will rejoin former 49ers teammate Takeo Spikes, who joined the Chargers earlier this week. He has started 32 games in his career and had 28.5 sacks, seven forced fumbles and an interception.

LaBoy spent his first four seasons (2004-07) in the NFL with Tennessee after a standout career at the University of Hawaii.
