After the Kansas City Chiefs’ 30-13 win over the San Diego Chargers, Penn State all-time great Tamba Hali put his college and professional rivalries aside and offered some words of wisdom to Chargers’ second-year lineman and Ohio State product Joey Bosa. The 12-year veteran instructed Bosa on pass-rush technique and the two casually drilled for a few seconds that bridged two generations of defensive greatness.

Although he has only recorded a single tackle this season, Hali, a five-time Pro Bowler with 89.5 career sacks, 32 forced fumbles, and 588 total tackles, has a wealth of knowledge to offer Bosa, an emerging star on the Chargers defensive line who has already totaled 22 sacks and 102 tackles through just two seasons. But if you ask Penn State fans, they probably don’t think Bosa needs much guidance. He terrorized the Nittany Lions with 13 tackles and 3.5 sacks the two times he played them in college.
Buckeyes coach Urban Meyer was quick to point out that while their colleges and NFL teams are adversaries, Hali and Bosa are united by a common thread: the king-making tutelage of Larry Johnson.
Common denominator- both developed by the best DL coach in college football – Larry Johnson! https://t.co/9bJO3jKbdB
