COSTA MESA, CALIFORNIA. (AP) – The Los Angeles Chargers have sacked manager Anthony Lynn less than two seasons after leading the franchise to the playoffs.
Lynn is the sixth NFL coach to be laid off this season, along with Bill O’Brien of Houston, Dan Quinn of Atlanta, Matt Patricia from Detroit, Adam Gase of the New York Jets and Doug Marrone of Jacksonville.
Los Angeles won their last four games 7-9, but it wasn’t enough to save Lynn’s job.
« I’m not sure there is any other person in this league more respected as a person than Anthony, » owner Dean Spanos said in a statement. “This is a results-driven business and, to put it simply, the results for the past two years have not lived up to expectations. ”
Lynn was hired by the Chargers in January 2017 and became the first black head coach in franchise history. He went 34-32 with Los Angeles but only 12-20 in the last two seasons. He still had one year of contract.
Los Angeles started Lynn’s first season 4-0 in 2017, but ended 9-7 after winning six of their last seven games. That served as a stepping stone until 2018 when Chargers 12-4 went, which was synonymous with the best record in the AFC. They defeated Baltimore in the wild card round before losing to New England in the playoffs.
Trying to repeat this success has been difficult to achieve. They have been settled 7-16 in games with eight points or less since the start of last season.
The Los Angeles opening could be one of the most fascinating of the off-season. The franchise moved into SoFi this season, but also has a talented core with Justin Herbert, Austin Ekeler, wide receivers Keenan Allen and Mike Williams, defensive end Joey Bosa and Safety Derwin James bringing back.
Herbert is named Attacking Rookie of the Year after setting a rookie record with 31 touchdown passes. He said he received a message that Lynn had been released.
« I learned so much from him and enjoyed my time with him, » said Herbert. « There is a lot of uncertainty. You have to rely on the guys and the locker room and rely on them if we are to get better. ”
General Manager Tom Telesco has one more year contract and will hire his third head coach. He is 61-69 during his tenure with only two playoff appearances in eight seasons.
Telesco has done well at drawing players with skill positions, but its freelance agent contract signings haven’t changed. The team needs upgrades in the offensive line as well as linebackers and cornerbacks.
