The Los Angeles Chargers may not be committed to a quarterback, but they are committed to their head coach.
Anthony Lynn has signed a multi-year contract extension with the Chargers, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter. The signing of the extension reportedly happened last week, and while nothing specific has been reported about the terms, it leaves him with “multiple years on his contract.”
Lynn, 51, would have been in the final year of his initial contract. He has coached the Chargers to a 26-22 record over three seasons, with the best coming in 2018, when they stormed their way to a decisive 12-4 record and made it to the divisional round of the playoffs.
The Chargers fell backward in 2019, finishing 5-11 after ending the season on a six-game losing streak. It was reported in January that they’re ready to move on from longtime quarterback Philip Rivers, which means the team could look a lot different in a few months. They could dip into the free-agent market, or hold off and see where backup QB Tyrod Taylor may take them.
It’ll be a period of change for the Chargers, and they’ve made it clear that Lynn is who they trust to lead the team through it.
