The Chargers were 5-11 nel 2019 e 7-9 nel 2020.

The Chargers’ job, tuttavia, was seen as highly coveted because of the young players the team has on offense and defense.

Justin Herbert’s emergence in his rookie season gave Los Angeles some hope. The team also has talented players like Austin Ekeler, Keenan Allen e Joey Bosa among others on the team.

The Chargers’ defense was 23rd in points allowed and 10th in yards allowed last season. Los Angeles is hoping Staley’s track record on defense will be enough to get the team back to the playoffs.
