After blowing the Jaguars to a 27–0 start in the playoffs, the Chargers decided to make major changes to their coaching staff.
Head coach Brandon Staley isn’t going anywhere this offseason. However, he will have a new supporting cast.
Chargers offensive coordinator Joe Lombardi has been fired, according to NFL Network insiders Ian Rapoport and Tom Pellicero,
The Chargers have also decided to fire quarterbacks coach Shane Day.
Pellicero is reporting that Staley was behind these changes in staff.
“But Staley realized that changes were needed, and that would include an overhaul on the offensive side. One of the NFL’s best OC jobs is now open,” Pelissero said.
Assistant coaches around the league should be lining up for the chance to become Los Angeles’ next offensive coordinator. Not only do the Chargers have a potential-packed quarterback in Justin Herbert, they also have a handful of playmakers.
The Chargers have not yet begun their search for a new offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach.
