RIP Marty Schottenheimer he should have been in the hall of fame already and he isn't the only former Chargers head coach that should be in the hall of fame already Don Coryell should be also. Don Coryell is pretty much one of the key architects of the modern passing game plus he was the first head coach that won over 100 games in both the NFL and college.

Absolutely.  He is where the term "Air Coryell" comes from.  The Chargers remain the only team in history to lead the NFL in total Passing Yards for 6 consecutive seasons (with Charger QB Dan Fouts being the only QB to lead the NFL in Passing for 4 consecutive seasons).  His lack of a Super Bowl win holds him back, back his contribution to and impact on the game should be taken into context in those discussions.
