After the Los Angeles Chargers Week 12 loss to the Buffalo Bills, a lot of fans are seriously eyeing the next potential head coach for the Bolts.
Anthony Lynn’s performance as a head coach once again disappointed, and his destiny is essentially written on the wall at this point.
Some are calling for the Chargers to pursue the former Bolts running back Eric Bieniemy, who is doing a phenomenal job as the Kansas City Chiefs offensive coordinator.
He would be a fitting candidate, although it now seems maybe the Bolts should consider a defensive-minded candidate like Robert Saleh.
His name is beginning to be linked to the Chargers. The Chargers offense took the next step this year, and the sky is the limit for Herbert and the crew going forward. Their problem so far has been mostly defensive issues, and what better candidate would there be than a guy like Saleh.
Saleh helped put together an electric defense in San Fransisco last season.
Not only did they make it to the Super Bowl last year, but Saleh is dealing with a plethora of injuries this year and still doing an exceptional job in the heavy-hitting NFC west division.
Gus Bradley and the Chargers defense have strongly underperformed this year.
Although the injuries have been rough for the Bolts, Saleh has proven that he can help a team fight through problems like those and that’s exactly what the Chargers need.
