The Los Angeles Chargers are only five days away from their worst loss in franchise history.
They scored 27 points over the Jacksonville Jaguars in game one of the AFC wild-card. It was the third largest blown lead in NFL playoff history.
This led to some changes to their coaching staff as offensive coordinator Joe Lombardi and quarterbacks coach Shane Day were let go on Monday.
Some media pundits also speculated whether head coach Brandon Staley would be on his way out, but according to general manager Tom Telesco, it never crossed his mind.
“No. He was probably more media buzz than us. The front office’s faith in Brandon hasn’t changed. He has our faith. Our players believe in him. He’s a tremendous leader,” Telesco said,
The Chargers will now be looking for an offensive coordinator that can take Justin Herbert and the rest of the offense to another level. With how good Herbert already is, this will be a gig that a lot of coaches around the league will be eyeing.
As for Staley, he will likely need to get some better results next season if he wants to continue in 2024.
