Despite the Chargers winning their last three games, I’m still a firm believer that the team needs to go into the 2021 season with a new guy in charge.

I’d say the chances of Los Angeles firing Lynn is about 50-50 now that they have the opportunity of ending the season with a 7-9 record as opposed to finishing 3-13.

However, if the upper management decides to part ways with coach Anthony Lynn, all attention will be shifted to L.A.

Touchdown Wire’s Mark Schofield believes that the Chargers would become the most attractive head coaching destination.

As we have found in both this exercise and in trying to identify the best general manager landing spots, when the quarterback issue is solved, life is a heck of a lot easier. The next Chargers head coach inherits a young quarterback who looks every bit the part of a franchise quarterback, along with talent at wide receiver, tight end, and running back on offense. They’ll also inherit a potentially devastating pass rush and talent in the secondary. A few smart moves from general manager Tom Telesco and a few breaks in 2021, and you’re in the playoffs your first year. A smooth glidepath to quick success makes this a very attractive option.

The Bolts possess one of the most complete rosters, which is headlined by star in the making quarterback Justin Herbert. Around Herbert is a slew of play-makers on both sides of the ball and Los Angeles will have a full offseason to only bolster what they already have.

I laid out 11 possible candidates for the Chargers, but the one that deserves the majority of the attention is Bills offensive coordinator Brian Daboll, as the chances of him having the same kind of success like he is having with QB Josh Allen is fairly high, given their similar skillset.

“Black Monday” is upon us. Only time will tell Lynn’s fate with L.A.
