Los Angeles Chargers rumors over the past several months have pointed to the possibility that head coach Anthony Lynn could be fired after four seasons in that role.

It’s not necessarily too much of a surprise given his in-game coaching struggles and the inability of his Chargers to win close games. Los Angeles heads into Week 17 with a 6-9 record and will finish under .500 for the second consecutive season after Lynn led them to winning marks in each of his first two years.

We now have more information on this. It’s not great news for Anthony Lynn.

Chargers rumors: Team to fire head coach Anthony Lynn

Lynn, 52, has posted a 32-31 record as the Chargers’ head coach. Over the course of the past two seasons, they boast a combined 7-16 record in one-score games. That pretty much doomed Lynn in Southern California.

It remains to be seen whether Chargers rumors this coming offseason will focus on the team bringing in another offensive mind as head coach.

Rookie quarterback Justin Herbert is finishing up shop on a tremendous initial season in the NFL. He enjoys a good relationship with Mr. Lynn. Common sense seems to suggest that the Chargers’ brass will look to provide him with an offensive-minded head coach.

Kansas City Chiefs offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy is among the names that will be bandied about moving forward. He actually played running back for the Chargers from 1991-94. So there’s a connection here, no matter how minimal it might be.

One thing is for sure. Once Los Angeles finishes up the 2020 season on Sunday, Chargers rumors are going to heat up big time as it relates to a new head coach. It’s going to be a huge decision for the organization given that Los Angeles has itself a franchise quarterback under center.
