The Los Angeles Chargers announce they are officially parting ways with head coach Anthony Lynn after four seasons, despite winning four straight games to finish their overall disappointing 7-9 campaign on a high note.
Lynn has a 33-31 regular season record and is 1-1 in the postseason — with the team missing the NFL Playoffs the last two seasons. The Chargers lost a whopping seven games by one score in the 2020 season.
That being said, I thought Lynn deserved another year considering how comfortable standout rookie quarterback Justin Herbert looked in his offense and all the injuries the team had to overcome. Evidently, Chargers management felt differently and a new head coach will now benefit from the quarterback Lynn helped develop.
Lynn is one of the most well-liked coaches in the league and will hopefully not be out of a job for long.
Via LA Chargers organization:
This morning I informed Anthony Lynn that we have made the decision to part ways with him as our head coach. I’m not sure there is another person in this league more respected as a human being than Anthony, and I want to sincerely express my deepest gratitude for his leadership during a time of great change for our organization. As we all know, this is a results-driven business and, simply put, the results of the past two years have fallen short of expectations. Moving forward, we will redouble our efforts to both build and maintain a championship-caliber program. We have been innovative in many facets of our organization in recent years, and we need to carry that over to our entire operation. Our fans need to know that the Los Angeles Chargers are committed to consistent, winning football. The search for a new head coach will begin immediately.Los Angeles Chargers Owner Dean Spanos
Statement from Anthony Lynn:
Growing up, coaches were like father figures to me. At every stage of life, I’ve had a coach that influenced me – including my time as an NFL player. That’s why I wanted to be a coach. For the Spanos family to give me the opportunity to be their head coach these past four years, I just can’t thank them enough. It’s been an absolute privilege to represent the Los Angeles Chargers on and off the field, and I’m grateful to our staff, coaches, players and everyone in the community who has been so supportive throughout my time with the organization.Anthony Lynn
