In his four-year tenure, Lynn went 33-31 with Los Angeles. Although he was well-liked by everyone in the organization, Lynn struggled with late-game situations and clock management, which is a common theme among recent Chargers coaches.
Despite ending the 2020 campaign on a four-game winning streak and coaching the likely offensive rookie of the year in Justin Herbert, the Chargers will be looking for a new coach this offseason.
Chargers owner Dean Spanos confirmed the news in a statement.

The Chargers job is one of the most attractive on the market. The team resides in a new stadium in sunny Los Angeles, the roster is stacked with Pro Bowlers and now a 22-year-old phenom at quarterback. General manager Tom Telesco has proven to be an incredibly talented drafter as well.
