The Los Angeles Chargers are on the hunt for their next offensive coordinator.
After their first-round playoff exit, the Chargers fired Joe Lombardi, who served as their OC for just two seasons before being let go.
Today, the Chargers have announced an interview for an intriguing candidate to fill this position.

Greg Olson has coached in the NFL since 2004, holding positions such as quarterbacks coach, assistant coach, offensive assistant, and offensive coordinator.
Olson has been the OC for five different teams.
His experience could prove to be vital for the Chargers, especially considering his background as a quarterbacks coach.
Olson could help Justin Herbert develop into an even better quarterback, and would be a great complement to Brandon Staley in leading the team.
In 2022, the Chargers’ offense averaged 23.4 points per game, which was the 12th-best mark in the league.
With the help of a new OC, they could easily move into the NFL’s top ten offenses.
Having a young superstar can help attract top coaching talent like Olson.
No matter who the Chargers choose as their next OC, that person will be stepping into a fantastic situation.
The Chargers have a serviceable defense, and, as long as the offense can put up points, the Chargers should have a much improved season in 2023.
Having Patrick Mahomes in the division is another motivator.
The Kansas City Chiefs have won the AFC West for seven-straight seasons, and it doesn’t look like they are ready to give up that crown anytime soon.
Will a new OC for the Chargers be the catalyst in taking down the Chiefs?
