Maybe they will let him go and clear the way for Hudson Houck who is completing the last year of his contract this season.

Here is his profile from the Chargers' website.

Couple of tidbits:

Quote:
Houck spent nine seasons (1993-2001) molding the Dallas Cowboys’ offensive line into one of the top units in league history. Dallas was one of only three teams in the NFL to allow fewer than 40 sacks in each of Houck’s nine years. The Cowboys were the only team to surrender fewer than 20 sacks more than once (three times) in that span. Prior to Houck’s arrival in Dallas, the Cowboys had allowed fewer than 30 sacks in a season only once in franchise history. Dallas accomplished that feat six times during his tenure.

From 1993-2000, Dallas led the league in fewest sacks allowed with 203 — Miami was second with 225.

During Houck’s 19-year career as an NFL coach, his lines have helped running backs produce six NFL rushing titles and 19 1,000-yard rushing seasons.
Plus, somehow he managed this year to gel an OL starting just one returning player, two yeoman (both of whom are signed for less money than McKinney, Wiegert & Wade), a rookie 3rd round center a rookie 7th round RT.

As an aside, anybody remember Bruce Willis playing this guy as a singing cat burgler?--I guess that is what he did before the coaching gig.
