Doug Gottlieb: "Staley was a quarterback in college, started on offense and moved to defense, but there's a formula a plan, and a thought that goes into what he does, how he does it, and why he does it. He has the ability to articulate it, not just to us, but also to his team. Because of that, he's a really, really bright guy, been around football in the lower levels and the NFL and understands how to read a room. He knows who to give a game ball to, he knows who the leaders are, he knows when to give guys time off, when to push."

Doug Gottlieb explains why new Chargers head coach is quickly showing the NFL and fans what the Chargers saw in him when they chose to make him their head coach this offseason after one year as the Rams defensive coordinator.
