A person close to the newly relocated Los Angeles Chargers announced Friday that the franchise agreed to a four-year deal to make former Buffalo Bills offensive coordinator Anthony Lynn the next head coach.
As reported by USA TODAY Sports, the person told USA TODAY Sports’ Tom Pelissero of the deal, but wishes to remain anonymous because the team has not made an official announcement.
Lynn, 48, was at Chargers headquarters on Thursday for a second interview with the team.
He took over as Bills offensive coordinator this season when Greg Roman was fired two games into the season. He later served as the interim coach for the regular-season finale after Rex Ryan was dismissed.
