The Chargers confirmed Thursday that they interviewed Luke Steckel for their offensive coordinator position.

The Chargers are looking for a replacement for Joe Lombardi, who they fired, along with quarterbacks coach Shane Day, on Jan. 17.

They also have interviewed Rams assistant head coach Thomas Brown, Vikings assistant quarterbacks coach Jerrod Johnson, Rams senior offensive assistant Greg Olson and Rams pass game coordinator Zac Robinson. They have requested an interview with Bills quarterbacks coach Joe Brady.

Steckel just completed his second season as the tight ends coach for the Titans and has 14 seasons of NFL experience.

He was assistant to the head coach for the Browns from 2009-12 before leaving for Tennessee. With the Titans, Steckel has held titles of offensive assistant/special assistant to the head coach (2013), offensive assistant coach (2014-16), receivers coach (2017) and offensive assistant (2018-20) as well as tight ends coach.

The Chargers ranked ninth in total offense and 13th in scoring in 2022, but they ran the ball only 35 percent of the time and finished 30th in rushing yards.

  1. I remember when Tampa ownership forced Tony Dungy to hire his dad as OC, only to find out that he had no experience calling plays.

  2. until they get all the parts it doesnt matter who they get. slow wrs don’t open up anything. the dbs can still play close to the line so with no speed the run and pass get shut down easy. the problems never was coaching

  3. Coaching and player immaturity were the problems in the Chargers loss to the Jaguars in the playoffs.

    Charger player immaturity, along with Schottenheimer’s ability to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory are the reasons the heavily favored Chargers lost to the Patriots in the 2006 playoffs.

    Coaching and player immaturity have always been the biggest issues with the Chargers when it came to playoff games.

    The Chargers need proven winners on their coaching staff. Unfortunately, the Chargers seem unwilling to being on those types of coaches
