Chargers To Move On From HC Anthony Lynn?



Jay Glazer of FOX Sports reports that Chargers HC Anthony Lynn is scheduled to meet with ownership on Monday. However, Glazer expects the Chargers to move on from Lynn in the coming days. 

According to Jason La Canfora, Chargers HC Anthony Lynn, once expected to be fired following the end of the season, has had enough success recently that he may avoid that fate.

A string of close losses and game management issues had Lynn on shaky footing just a few weeks ago. But the Chargers have won three straight and can finish 7-9 with a win over the Chiefs today. 

First-round QB Justin Herbert has also been outstanding and vouched for Lynn this past week. La Canfora writes the Spanos family that owns the Chargers holds Lynn and his leadership skills in high regard and could be patient with him for longer than some expect. 

Lynn, 51, played six seasons in the NFL for the Broncos and 49ers before taking his first coaching job in 2000 as the Broncos’ special teams assistant. He had brief stints with the Jaguars, Cowboys, Browns and Jets as their running backs coach before he was hired by the Bills in 2015.

Buffalo promoted Lynn to offensive coordinator after firing Greg Roman and he later took over for Rex Ryan towards the end of the 2016 season. The Chargers later hired him as their head coach in 2017. Earlier this year, they signed him to a one-year extension through 2021. 

During his four years with the Chargers, Lynn has led the team to a record of 32-31 (50.7 percent), which includes one playoff appearance.
