The Chargers became the sixth team to have a head coaching vacancy when they finally decided to part ways with Anthony Lynn on Monday morning.

The Chargers coaching staff, despite the obviously high number of gaffes and mistakes made during the season at varying moments, has some members of interest. Shane Steichen will gather interest for what he did to help develop Justin Herbert, while Anthony Lynn is still highly respected and could end up with some HC/OC interviews.

For the next week or so, I’ll have this tracker pinned to the front page and keep it updated if and when news regarding the Chargers gets reported.
