Chargers plan to evaluate HC Anthony Lynn after season

Anthony Lynn will remain the Los Angeles Chargers’ coach, at least for now.

NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported Monday that no head coaching change is imminent, per sources informed of the situation.

The organization has a tremendous amount of respect for Lynn and would prefer to evaluate everything at the end of the season, Rapoport added.

The 51-year-old coach said after Sunday’s 45-0 loss to New England that he expected to be the Bolts coach Monday. He’ll get his wish.

“I’ve worked my tail off my whole life to get here. Yeah, I’m having a down year and I understand people are going to take shots and people are going to be critical. That’s to be expected, but we have had some success here as well,” Lynn said Monday, per Gilbert Manzano of the L.A. Daily News.

Lynn is two years removed from guiding the Chargers on a 12-4 campaign in 2018, tied for the best record in the AFC. The past two seasons, L.A. has cratered, culminated by his 3-9 club being eliminated from playoff contention Sunday.

In 60 games as the Chargers coach, Lynn has compiled a 29-31 record. His team is 1-1 in the postseason.
