Now here’s the coaching news we were all hoping to see sooner or later.
According to NFL insider Tom Pelissero, the Chargers have formally requested an interview with Bills offensive coordinator Brian Daboll.
Daboll, 45, was the offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach for the University of Alabama when they won the College Football Playoff National Championship back in 2017. He was hired by the Bills the following year and has since proven to be one of the best offensive coordinators in the NFL, especially when you take into account the meteoric rise for quarterback Josh Allen from “project” to legitimate MVP candidate in the span of just three years.
It’s hard not to get excited about what Daboll could potentially do with a quarterback in Justin Herbert that has a very similar skillset as Allen. Daboll’s ability to adapt on a weekly basis is also quite enticing for Chargers fans who consistently saw their offense fall flat all too often in 2020.
