Coaches

Charles London
Running Backs

Charles London enters his first season with the Houston Texans and sixth overall in the NFL in 2014, where he will serve as running backs coach.

Charles London enters his first season with the Houston Texans and sixth overall in the NFL in 2014, where he will serve as running backs coach.

Prior to the Texans, London spent the past two seasons at Penn State as the running backs coach and recruiting coordinator for Bill O’Brien. London was instrumental in the progression of running back Zach Zwinak who rushed for 1,989 yards over the last two seasons, good for the third-most rushing yards by a running back in the Big Ten in that time. Zwinak’s 12 rushing touchdowns in 2013 tied for the fourth-most rushing scores in the conference.

In 2011, London served as offensive assistant and quality control coach for the Tennessee Titans. He helped lead the Titans to a three-win improvement from 6-10 to 9-7, narrowly missing the playoffs due to a tiebreaker. That season, the Titans passing offense improved 11 spots to 12th in the NFL (245.2 yards per game) from 25th (194.2 yards per game).

London spent the 2010 season as a pro scout for the Philadelphia Eagles, helping them gain a playoff berth. Before Philadelphia, he worked three years as an offensive assistant with the Chicago Bears (2007-09). His first year with the Bears was as a quality control coach on offense and his final two years were as offensive assistant/assistant wide receivers coach.

London also has three years of coaching experience at his alma mater, Duke (2004-06). He started as a graduate assistant in his first two years and was the running backs coach in his final year. During the summer of 2005, as part of the NFL’s Minority Internship program, he did a coaching internship with the New England Patriots.

Prior to entering the coaching world, London gained experience as an Events Manager for Disney’s Wide World of Sports from 1998-99, Stadium Assistant Manager for the Cleveland Browns from 1999-2001 and Director of Stadium Operations for Gillette Stadium from 2001-04.

As a player at Duke (1994-96), London saw action in 34 games at running back over three years for the Blue Devils and also lettered as a sprinter for the track team. Duke’s 1994 team earned a berth in the Hall of Fame Bowl. He also earned the football team’s Trinity Teammate Award and Carmen Falcone Award for excellence in athletics and academics in 1996 and the College Football Hall of Fame Foundation Award in 1997. Additionally, he was a member of the ACC Honor Roll in 1996-97. London earned an undergraduate degree in political science from Duke in 1997 and a graduate degree in humanities in 2006.
