Anthony Lynn might not be on the market long.
According to Tom Pelissero with the NFL Network, the former Los Angeles Chargers head coach is being pursued by the Seattle Seahawks to fill the team’s opening at offensive coordinator. That news was announced on Friday morning via Twitter.
“Former Chargers coach Anthony Lynn has spoken with Pete Carroll about the Seahawks offensive coordinator job, sources tell me and Ian Rapoport,” Pelissero tweeted. “Lynn hasn’t decided what he wants to do in 2021, but he’d be among Seattle’s top choices.”

Lynn is a well-respected coach around the league, and he would probably enjoy getting to work with players like Russell Wilson and DK Metcalf in Seattle. It has been rumored that he prefers working with dual threat quarterbacks, so the fit with Wilson would make sense.
Will it happen? That remains to be seen, but that move would also allow Lynn to stay on the West Coast after spending the past four seasons in Los Angeles.
During his time with the Chargers, the 52-year-old coach went 33-31, and was 7-9 this season.
