Now that the Chargers moved back to Los Angeles , the Chargers have hired former Bills offensive coordinator Anthony Lynn will be the franchise's new coach.
Anthony Lynn joins the Chargers after serving as the Bills' running backs coach/offensive coordinator. Buffalo's offense ranked 13th in the NFL in total yardage (360.9 yards per game) in 2015 and 16th in 2016 (354.1 per game), and led the league in rushing in both seasons (152.0 and 164.4 yards per game in 2015 and '16, respectively).
Lynn began his coaching career as a special teams and offensive assistant for the Broncos, working in Denver from 2000-02. He later served as the running backs coach for the Jaguars (2003-04), Cowboys (2005-06), Browns (2007-08) and Jets (2009-14) before joining the Bills.
Lynn was named as the Bills' interim coach for the final game of this season after Buffalo fired Rex Ryan. The Bills lost to the Jets 30-10.
“I’m having a hard time even putting into words how excited I am to be the new head coach for the Los Angeles Chargers,” Lynn said via a team statement. “This is really a dream come true."
