If you’ve never heard of Staley before this moment, don’t worry because you’re certainly not alone. The man was coaching at DIII John Carroll University just a few years ago.

Now, he’s the head coach of an NFL franchise. If that’s not a meteoric rise, then I don’t know what is.

Most recently, Staley was the DC for the Rams. So, he won’t have to go far to find his new team. He won’t have to go far at all.

What I do know for sure is that the Chargers had a very attractive opening, and they were probably the second best landing spot behind only Jacksonville.

Justin Herbert is the real deal at quarterback, and the city is an easy place to lure free agents to.

We’ll see how he does, but there’s no doubt the Chargers have all the necessary pieces to win.
