Brandon Staley and the Chargers are searching for a new offensive coordinator after Joe Lombardi was fired and they’ve shown interest in two Rams assistants already. After requesting an interview with Rams QBs coach Zac Robinson, the Chargers will also interview Greg Olson, who’s a senior offensive assistant on Sean McVay’s staff.
Olson is currently in his third stint with the Rams, working as their offensive coordinator in 2006-2007 and QBs coach in 2017 before rejoining them in 2022. In between, he was the Raiders’ offensive coordinator from 2018-2021. He’s also spent time as the OC with the Lions, Buccaneers and Jaguars throughout his coaching career.
Olson, 59, has a ton of experience as an offensive coach in the NFL, and although Staley didn’t work with him while with the Rams in 2020, Staley clearly has a ton of respect for coaches on McVay’s staff.
