LA Chargers head coach Anthony Lynn could be on the pre-emptive hot seat.

Anthony Lynn as been a breath of fresh air for the LA Chargers, who have had several frustrating head coaches in the last decade or so. Lynn coached the Chargers to their only 10+ win of the 2010s and many Charger fans have bought all-in on Lynn’s coaching.

Lynn has been a good coach, there is no denying that. He has a winning record in two of his three seasons with the Chargers and that cannot be discounted. In fact, many would argue that those two winning seasons have essentially locked his job in place for at least a few more seasons.

However, we are entering an interesting season for the LA Chargers that is hard to predict. If the season goes haywire, as it did last year, then Lynn very well could be on the hot seat and lose his job.

If the Chargers yet again win six or fewer games then the front office very well could look to move on. That is how the NFL works, things move fast and ownership can be impatient.

We absolutely are not advocating for Lynn to lose his job. I genuinely hope the Chargers succeed this season just so he can continue to be the head coach of the team. However, there are some specific reasons why the Chargers would let him go if this season goes down the drain.

Here are those specific reasons.
