Multiple head coaching candidates are in contention for the opening
Josh McDaniels was linked to be a contender for the Chargers’ head coaching opening by Albert Breer and Benjamin Allbright. His connection to Tom Telesco have led many to believe that he could very well be the frontrunner for the job.
It isn’t just McDaniels in contention either. Bills OC Brian Daboll was linked to the job by Breer:
if Chargers go for new coach @AlbertBreer thinks Brian Daboll would be a candidate:" He and (GM Tom) Telesco actually went to the same Buffalo-area high school, and they have the same agent. Daboll’s worked his way into the top group of coaching candidates,

Also per Breer in the same interview, Panthers OC Joe Brady is generating some buzz for a potential head coaching job in LA as well.
We could debate the names as well as who would be the best option between those three. But all three names make one thing crystal clear-Lynn is a goner.
Adam Gase and Doug Pederson are two other coaches who are also on the hot seat. In terms of replacement rumors for a potential firing though, Lynn still is generating the most attention by far. It isn’t even close.
The Chargers potentially have one of the most enviable coaching openings if they do fire Lynn. With three coaches already in the ball game for the job, it’s another factor that makes Lynn a sitting duck.
Think about how traditionally tight-lipped Telesco is. We never know anything about his drafts or trades until they happen. The fact that we have several candidates already with a general manager who never lets any information out? It simply can’t bode well for Lynn.
