Chargers fire Anthony Lynn after 33 wins in four seasons

By Anthony Caruso III | Publisher

The Los Angeles Chargers have fired head coach Anthony Lynn. He spent four seasons leading the team.

He was 33-31 in those four seasons. This past season, the Chargers went 7-9, including a four-game win streak to end the season.

“This morning, I informed Anthony Lynn that we have made the decision to part ways with him as our head coach,” Chargers owner Dean Spanos said. “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.”

Something happened the past two seasons with the Chargers. In those two seasons, the team went 12-20.

Before the drop off, the team went 21-11 in their first two seasons under Lynn. In addition, this included their lone playoff berth under his leadership.

The Chargers defeated the Baltimore Ravens in the 2019 Wild Card round. Then, in the AFC Divisional round, the team was defeated by the New England Patriots.

A national search has begun to find Lynn’s replacement.
