Anthony Lynn will not return as head coach of the Los Angeles Chargers, the organization announced Monday.
“This morning I informed Anthony Lynn that we have made the decision to part ways with him as our head coach,” owner Dean Spanos said in a statement. “I’m not sure there is another person in this league more respected as a human being than Anthony, and I want to sincerely express my deepest gratitude for his leadership during a team of great change for our organization. As we all know, this is a results-driven business and, simply put, the results of the past two years have fallen short of expectations.”
After going 21-11 with a playoff appearance in his first two seasons, Lynn saw the Chargers drop to 12-20 in 2019-20.
The club closed with a 4-game winning streak this season, but Lynn was undone by an inability to win close games. The Bolts were 6-16 in one-score games over the past two campaigns.
