Chargers fire OC Joe Lombardi after playoff collapse

The Los Angeles Chargers have fired offensive coordinator Joe Lombardi and quarterbacks coach Shane Day.

Changes were expected to head coach Brandon Staley’s staff following  a shocking loss on Saturday in a wild-card playoff game in which the Chargers gave up a 27-point lead to lose to the Jacksonville Jaguars 31-30.

The Chargers held a 27-0 lead in the second quarter but scored only three more points the remainder of the game.

After posting the third-best total quarterback ranking in his second season (behind Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers), Herbert dipped to 11th in the NFL this season. A year after passing for 38 touchdowns Herbert this season passed for 25.
