The Chargers put together four straight wins to end the season, but that wasn’t enough to save his job. Owner Dean Spanos released a statement on Monday that Lynn was being relieved of his coaching duties and that the search for a new head coach would begin immediately. Lynn got off to a great start with the Chargers, leading them to a record of 21-11 through his first two seasons, but the team stumbled to a mark of just 12-20 over the past two.
Whoever takes over in Los Angeles will have plenty to work with. Justin Herbert put together one of the most impressive rookie seasons for a quarterback in league history, and they should be better defensively with star safety Derwin James returning to the lineup next season. The Chargers are now the sixth team with a head coaching vacancy, joining the Lions, Falcons, Jets, Jaguars, and Texans.
