Lions Finalizing Deal With Former Chargers Coach Anthony Lynn As Offensive Coordinator

Written by Will

The Lions announced earlier today that Aaron Glenn will officially be the defensive coordinator. Now it looks like they have found their offensive coordinator in Anthony Lynn.

Lynn served as the offensive coordinator in 2016 for the Bills. That offense ranked 10th in yards with Tyrod Taylor as the quarterback. He has been the head coach of the Chargers for the last four seasons, going 33-31. In his four years with the Chargers, the offense ranked top ten in yards every year but one.

The coaching staff is starting to shape up, with both coordinator spots being filled. Both solid hires. I know Lynn had his struggles this year but that was mostly with time management at the end of games. He won’t be in charge of that. Now the real question is what are the Lions going to do with Stafford?
