Following an epic collapse in their playoff loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars where they surrendered a 27-point lead, the Los Angeles Chargers have fired offensive coordinator Joe Lombardi, according to ESPN.

The Chargers, who also fired quarterbacks coach Shane Day, have been expected to make changes to head coach Brandon Staley’s staff following their Wild Card loss, and Lombardi is among them.

The Chargers ranked 30th in the NFL, rushing for an average of only 89.6 yards per game, and the unit ranked 17th in red zone efficiency, converting only 54.1% of their red zone drives into touchdowns.

Lombardi and Day, who also held the title of passing game coordinator, were among the initial staff hired by Staley when he landed the Chargers head coaching gig in 2021.
