Los Angeles Chargers hire Anthony Lynn as new head coach

The Los Angeles Chargers have a new city, new logo and now a new head coach.

On Friday morning, 24 hours after officially announcing the team’s relocation from San Diego, it was reported that the team has agreed to a four-year deal with Buffalo Bills offensive coordinator Anthony Lynn as the next head coach, replacing Mike McCoy.

Adam Schefter of ESPN was first to report the news.

Along with leading the Bills offense, Lynn took over as Buffalo’s interim head coach in 2016 following the firing of Rex Ryan.

The 44-year-old won two Super Bowls as a player with the Denver Broncos. He also had a two-year stint with the San Francisco 49ers. Lynn started his coaching career as a special teams assistant with the Broncos, before being a running backs coach for the Jacksonville Jaguars, Dallas Cowboys, Cleveland Browns and New York Jets. He spent two-years in Buffalo running the offense.
