The Los Angeles Chargers are parting ways with head coach Anthony Lynn after a second consecutive losing season, the team announced Monday. Lynn went 33-31 during his time with the Chargers including a 12-4 record in 2018 that included a trip to the divisional round against the Patriots.
This morning, Dean Spanos released a statement on the decision to part ways with Anthony Lynn:
This morning I informed Anthony Lynn that we made the decision to part ways with him as our head coach. I am 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 time of great change for our organization. As we all know, this is a results driven buisness and, simply put, the results of the past two years have fallen short of expectations. Moving forward, we will redouble our efforts to both build and maintain a championship caliber program. We have been innovative in many facets of our organization in recent years, and we need to carry that over to our entire opersation.
