Chargers Fire OC Joe Lombardi
NFL Wild Card - The Los Angeles Chargers have fired offensive coordinator Joe Lombardi, according to a report from ESPN's Adam Schefter.
Lombardi was hired alongside head coach Brandon Staley in 2021. He previously served as a quarterbacks coach for the New Orleans Saints, briefly serving as an offensive coordinator for the Detroit Lions between two stints in the role.
After posting a fourth-best 16.0% offensive DVOA in 2021, the Chargers offense took a big step back in 2022 with a 19th-ranked -19.% DVOA. At one point during the season, Los Angeles had a stretch of negative offensive DVOA in nine of ten games.
