The Los Angeles Chargers have fired head coach Anthony Lynn.

Owner and chairman Dean Spanos announced the firing in a statement issued Monday.

“As we all know, this is a results-driven business and, simply put, the results of the past two years have fallen short of expectations,” Spanos said. 

Against a team of mostly Kansas City backups, the Chargers coasted to a 38-21 victory Sunday. The Chiefs had already turned their attention to the postseason with nothing to gain from a victory.

Reports surfaced earlier in the day that Lynn could be fired as soon as Monday, when he was expected to meet with ownership. The Chargers (7-9) finished the year with four straight wins, and Justin Herbert has emerged as a franchise QB, but Lynn’s fate may have been sealed when they missed the playoffs for the second consecutive year.
