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.
