Im not quite sure what stats you view for O-Linemen, but I suppose the biggest one would be sacks given up..

Im listening to Saban's interview it it sounds like he believes Coaching will truly stabilize this unit and make it serviceable if not very good.

Name: Hudson Houck
Title: Offensive Line
College: USC
NFL: 23rd Season
Dolphins: First Season




Hudson Houck is entering his first season as the Dolphins’ offensive line coach, having been named to the post on January 25, 2005 by Head Coach Nick Saban.

Houck, an NFL assistant for the past 22 years, spent the last three in the same position with the San Diego Chargers. His unit helped the offense rank tenth in the NFL, including sixth in rushing, leading the Chargers to a 12-4 record and the AFC West Championship.

In 2003, Houck’s offensive line opened holes for All-Pro running back LaDainian Tomlinson and helped the Chargers lead the NFL in yards per carry. That season, the unit was forced to use 11 different starters, but still produced the league’s sixth-ranked rushing attack.

Before joining San Diego, Houck spent nine seasons (1993-2001) developing the Dallas Cowboys’ offensive line into one of the best in NFL history. Dallas was one of only three teams in the league to allow fewer than 40 sacks in each of Houck’s nine years and the only team to give up less than 20 sacks more than once (three times) during that period. Throughout Houck’s nine-year run with the Cowboys, the unit allowed the fewest sacks in the NFL. Over Houck’s NFL career, his lines have helped produce six NFL rushing titles and 20 individual 1,000-yard rushing seasons. NFL all-time leading rusher Emmitt Smith accounted for at least 1,000 yards during each of Houck’s nine years in Dallas. Also during that time, six different offensive linemen were named to the Pro Bowl at least two times each – Larry Allen (seven), Nate Newton (five), Erik Williams (four), Ray Donaldson (two), Mark Stepnoski (two) and Mark Tuinei (two).

Prior to his tenure with the Cowboys, Houck spent nine years (1983-91) as the Los Angeles Rams’ offensive line coach. Similarly, during his time with that franchise, no team sent more linemen to the Pro Bowl, led by Hall of Famer Jackie Slater’s seven trips. Doug Smith went six times and three others combined for eight trips. The line paved the way for a 1,000-yard rusher in seven of Houck’s nine seasons, en route to four rushing titles – three by Eric Dickerson and one by Charles White. In Houck’s final three seasons with the Rams (1989-91), Jim Everett threw for more yards than any other NFL quarterback during that span. Houck’s units’ pass protection enabled Everett to make every start from 1988-91.

Houck went to the Rams with John Robinson, when the latter was hired to become the team’s head coach in 1983. Prior to joining the NFL, the two spent the first seven of their 16 years together at the University of Southern California. At USC, his alma mater, Houck coached seven All-Americans who went on to play in the NFL, including Marvin Powell, Pat Howell, Brad Budde, Keith Van Horne, Roy Foster, Bruce Matthews and Don Mosebar.

In his playing days for the Trojans (1962-64), Houck played center, where he was part of the 1962 National Champions. He began his coaching career as an assistant at Crescenta Valley High School in 1966. After serving two years in the United States Army, Houck returned for one season at Crescenta. He then moved on to coach the freshmen at USC (1970-71) before becoming Stanford’s offensive line coach (1972-75). The Los Angeles native attended the city’s Eagle Rock High School. Houck has a son, Troy. His wife Elsie, has two children, Scott and Holly.

after reading that how can you not think we're gonna have one of the best offenses in the NFL. With Houck's help, Feeley might end up looking like Marino!

The more I read and hear about Hudson Houck, the more I like and the more I respect the guy. I'm not expecting him to make our Offensive Line the best in the league, but with this guy you never know... he could very well end up doing that after a few seasons. Behind signing Saban, signing Houck was the best offseason move we've made in my honest opinion. I'm definitely feeling optimistic about our future.

Hey guys...San Diego Charger fan here....Have faith in Houck...he's a helluva O-line coach...I would go as far as saying he's the MacGuyver of O-line coaches...I watched him put together a stable O-line with 2 popsicle sticks and a gum wrapper here in SD...His blocking schemes are sound and he knows how to get the most out of his hogs...He's also able to manipulate the line to strong pass blocking or strong run blocking, depending on what the offensive focus will be...It was a shame he didn't want to stay in SD because none of the fans wanted to see him leave.
