Chargers HC Anthony Lynn on job status: ‘When I know something, I’ll let you know’ – Chargers Wire

Following the Chargers’ worst defeat in franchise history in Week 13, it appeared that Anthony Lynn was going to get the boot.

The upper management, however, gave Lynn the last four games of the season to make his case to be retained. All of them resulted in wins, including the season finale victory over the Chiefs on Sunday.

Following the win, Lynn was asked about his future with Los Angeles. Confidently, he said that he is going to meet with ownership on Monday like he always does and that he remains in the job for the time being.

“I think we’ve done a good job here under the circumstances. Yeah, I’d like to be the head coach here, but like I said, right now I’m under contract. So I am the head coach here. When I know something, I will let you know,” Lynn said.

Lynn helped himself in the month of December, but his poor game management and decision-making almost cost them in three of those victories. Owner Dean Spanos and company might believe the sample size is large enough to find it hard that the problems will be resolved.

In the last two seasons, Lynn was 7-16 in one-score games.

If there’s anything that’s saving Lynn’s job, it’s soon-to-be Offensive Rookie of the Year, quarterback Justin Herbert. After making an unexpected start in Week 2, Herbert completed 67% of his passes for 4,336 yards, 31 touchdowns, five rushing touchdowns, and only ten interceptions.

A report by Fox Sports’ Jay Glazer indicated that it is believed that Lynn will be relieved of his duties on Monday, but we won’t know until it’s officially official, which should come tomorrow morning. If Lynn is let go of, he ends his four-year tenure with the Chargers with a 33-31 overall record.
