Ian Rapoport reports that the Chargers will interview former Jaguars HC Gus Bradley for their defensive coordinator job now that they’ve officially hired Anthony Lynn as their new head coach.
- Rapoport says that Bradley is the Chargers’ top choice for the position.
Early reports mentioned that Lynn and Bradley were being sold as a tandem, possibly for the Bills. However, Buffalo elected to go in a different direction altogether and hire Sean McDermott as their new head coach.
Since then, Bradley has met with the Redskins but it became clear in the past few days that the Chargers could also be an option for him, considering their level of interest in hiring Lynn.
Bradley is now the best available defensive coordinator with Wade Phillips taking the Rams job.
Bradley, 50, was hired by the Jaguars back in 2013 after he spent four years with the Seahawks. In four years with the Jaguars, Bradley produced a record of 14-47 (23 percent) and no playoff appearances. The Jaguars’ most wins under Bradley was five from last year.
We’ll have more regarding the Bradley and the Chargers’ defensive coordinator job as the news is available.
