The Los Angeles Chargers have found their next head coach, and it’s coming from the Sean McVay coaching tree. Brandon Staley, who’s been the defensive coordinator for the Rams since Wade Phillips departure, has helped the rams reach top of the league in both pass and rush defense. Previously before working with the Rams he was working under Vic Fangio in Denver and Chicago.
Staley is a young promising coach, only 38 years old he has a ton of potential especially with a solid roster like the Chargers. We’ll see if he can compete for the division with Offensive Rookie of The Year candidate Justin Herbert. After the firing of Anthony Lynn, media speculated that Buffalo Bills offensive coordinator Brian Daboll would be the favorite to land the job, but the management has made their decision. People around the league speculate whether Staley would work with a young quarterback like Herbert, but Peter Schrager had something to say about that.
Staley is excited to get started, he had a ton of great things to say about the city of Los Angeles and the team itself. The quote is below.
“While this is certainly a dream come true, it’s also a dream that’s just beginning. There’s a reason this was probably the most sought after job out there — from ownership, to the fans, to the city, to the men in that locker room — it’s the total package. I can’t thank the Spanos family and Tom Telesco enough for placing their faith in us, and by the time everyone is reading this quote in a press release, we’ll already be hard at work developing a program Chargers fans everywhere can be proud of.”
