After a 45-0 loss to the Patriots, it became clear that the Chargers would make no decisions about the future of fourth-year coach Anthony Lynn until the season ended. So the season has now ended, and the Chargers will make a decision about Lynn.

At this point, it’s not known by many/any outside the organization what the Chargers will decide to do. They’ve managed to keep their cards very close to the vest, resulting in little clarity regarding Lynn’s future.

They respect Lynn immensely; that’s one of the reasons why nothing is being leaked. There’s also a chance that they are wary of the potential impact of a coaching change on a young quarterback, along with the devil you know vs. the devil you don’t dynamic.

Working in Lynn’s favor is the fact that, after the low-water mark against New England, the Chargers won their final four games, finishing 7-9.

  1. The Chargers, with NO real preseason, came a heck of a long way this year. They will be better next year, on defense and on offense. Coach Lynn should be back and for at least 3 more years!

  2. If they were still playing in San Diego, they’d bring him back because Lynn still has one year left on his contract. If they do let Lynn go I wonder who they’d hire? The only big name coach the Spanos family has ever hired was Marty and they fired him after going 14 – 2

  3. Unless they have a real A-lister name knocking on the door, I’m guessing they keep him around for continuity. With making the playoffs next season the expectation.

  4. I think just about the worst thing you can do to Herbert is fire Lynn and start him over again with a new system. They’ve done this time and again in Cleveland, the Jets are in the middle of ruining Any chance Darnold had. Who knows what happens in Cincinnati. There wasn’t any off season and it was a tough year for everyone. They have a lot of potential. Don’t ruin the kid just yet.

    Chiefs fan.

  5. Sometimes you gotta grow a coach like you gotta grow a QB. I’d bring him back.

  6. these types of decisions are tough ones especially if you go out strong to Lynn’s favor, but whats not in his favor is consistency, yes the team went out with a bang but (always a but) what happens when you start flat again?

  7. It’s seems that they should stay the course and keep Lynn. A strong finish combined with his apparent rapport with their young franchise QB, indicates that you should maintain the continuity and stability there.
