Anthony Lynn says coaching Chargers was a “privilege”

A 33-31 record over four seasons as head coach of the Los Angeles Chargers wasn’t enough for Anthony Lynn to keep his job at the conclusion of the 2020 season.

But Lynn expressed no bitterness about his firing in his first public comments Tuesday. Lynn, who coached the Chargers to a 7-9 record this season, released a statement through the team’s official Twitter account.

“For the Spanos family to give me the opportunity to be their head coach these past four years, I just can’t thank them enough,” said part of Lynn’s statement. “It’s been an absolute privilege to represent the Los Angeles Chargers on and off the field, and I am grateful to our staff, coaches, players and everyone in the community who has been supportive throughout my time with the organization.”

Lynn, 52, had his best season with the Chargers in 2018, when Los Angeles went 12-4 and defeated the Baltimore Ravens in the AFC wild card round. But Los Angeles lost the next week to New England, ending the Chargers’ only playoff run of Lynn’s tenure.
