April Fools Day is a time to celebrate jokes and laughter, so we decided to laugh as some pretty bad former LA Chargers head coaches.

There are not many things that are better than a good dad joke but one thing that is are awful NFL head coaches that make the everyday fan feel like they can do a better job.

I mean, c’mon, who doesn’t have fun laughing at the back-to-back coaching disasters of Hue Jackson and Freddie Kitchens on the Cleveland Browns?

The LA Chargers have also had some hilariously bad head coaches in their history and while it probably was not funny at the time, we can get a kick looking back at these head coaches and how bad they really were.

Without further ado, here are the LA Chargers’ four most hilariously bad previous head coaches.

4. Mike McCoy

  • Years coached: 2013-2016
  • Record: 27-37

Things were not always bad under Mike McCoy, in fact, the Chargers actually made the playoffs with McCoy at the helm in his first season in 2013. The Chargers were not all that impressive with a 9-7 record but went on to handily beat the Cincinnati Bengals in the Wild-Card Round and barely came up short against the Denver Broncos.

McCoy went 9-7 in his second season but the wheels started to fall off in years three and four as the Chargers sunk to 4-12 and then 5-11. While it might not seem like McCoy was too bad on the surface, the Chargers have only had four losing seasons since 2004 and he has two of them.

Plus, I will never be able to get the thought of that dang visor out of my mind. He dressed like my dad if he went on a golf trip with all of his friends, and I don’t know if that is a good thing.
