The LA Chargers are entering an important offseason that will define the franchise for years to come. After making a step in the right direction to make the playoffs, the Chargers suffered one of the worst losses in franchise history, blowing a 27-0 lead against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Brandon Staley and Tom Telesco's jobs should be hanging in the balance in 2023, making this offseason all the more important. The team does not have as many resources as last year but the importance is even higher.
Here are 6 bold predictions for the Chargers 2023 offseason:
1. Chargers hire a former PFF analyst to be the offensive coordinator
There are two coaches that fit into this billing. One of which has already been confirmed as a potential candidate for the Chargers, Zac Robinson. The other has not yet been connected to the team but still has what LA is looking for in Bobby Slowik.
Brandon Staley has made it clear that he values the Sean McVay/Kyle Shanahan coaching tree and wants his offensive staff to mimic that in Los Angeles. Both players come from that tree (Robinson working with the Rams and Slowik working for the 49ers) and would add that offensive mind to the building that Staley is looking for.
Frank Reich is probably still the best all-around option with someone from that coaching tree perhaps serving under him as the QBs coach but this is an ownership group that has been cheap and may not splurge for the most expensive OC on the market. For that reason, the Chargers hiring one of these two former PFF analysts seems likely.
