    Report: Chargers set to name Greg Manusky defensive coordinator

    Posted by Gregg Rosenthal on January 13, 2011, 8:11 PM EST

    The most popular coordinator name still on the coaching market is about to be snapped up.

    Kevin Acee of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports that Greg Manusky is set to be named Chargers defensive coordinator, although he cautions the deal isn’t done quite yet.

    Manusky did a solid job in San Francisco over the last four years and is well regarded in league circles. He also interviewed in Dallas, Arizona, and Carolina. (His Panthers interview was for the head coaching job.) Manusky runs a 3-4 defense, which has been in place in San Diego since Wade Phillips was in town.

    If this move goes through, the Cowboys will have to start their defensive coordinator search over.

    Paul Pasqualoni surprisingly was awarded the head coaching job at UConn Thursday. Mike Nolan is staying in Miami. Another interviewee Vic Fangio is expected to end up in San Francisco.

    Manusky was the one I would have wanted to take over when Wade left.

    If he's hired, I sure as hell hope he instills a mean streak.

    Singletary, but Manusky has the added benefit of being sane

    Yeah I like the look of Manusky. I wonder are the Chargers the first team to 'offer' him the job?. If not it must say something that he chooses SD over other teams. Caution though, until he signs on the dotted line he is not the DC.

    According to 9er fans Manusky doesn't like to blitz and is kind of soft in the pass rush.

    Not sure if I like that.

    I sure as hell don't like that. We don't need more "sit back and wait for them to screw up" defense. We need to attack and force errors
