Chargers Fun Fact: The Legendary Dan Fouts

The man


In 1982, Dan Fouts became the first QB in history to throw back-to-back 400-yard passing games.
Chargers QB Billy Volek is the only other Charger with this distinction.

In 1979, Fouts set an NFL record by passing for over 300-yards in four consecutive games.

Dubbed the pilot of the "Air Coryell" offense, Dan Fouts retired from the NFL after 15 years with the San Diego Chargers. He got his first taste of football hanging out with his father, Bob Fouts who was an announcer for the San Francisco 49ers. Fouts landed his very first job for an NFL team as the ball boy for the 49ers.
