Bolts Add OT Chris Hairston to Reinforce O-Line - Ricky Henne
The 6-6, 330-pound Hairston has appeared in 42 career games and all 15 of his starts came under D’Alessandris.  He missed the entire 2013 campaign after being placed on the reserve/non-football injury list, but returned in 2014 to appear in all 16 games.

An interesting question, with again no clear answer.
