New Chargers Coach Lynn: “I Would Never Call Myself a Players’ Coach”

(Before It's News)

In a recent interview with ESPN, new Chargers coach Anthony Lynn was asked about the “players’ coach” title, which was often readily bestowed upon Rex Ryan before his brand of coaching became wildly unpopular, Conor Orr of NFL.com reports. Lynn served as Ryan’s running backs coach, assistant head coach and offensive coordinator from 2009-2016.

“I would never call myself a players’ coach,” Lynn said. “But I think the real players, they crave the discipline. They crave the accountability, and that’s what I’m going to hold you to.

“We’re going to operate that way. And guys that don’t like it, they won’t be around.”

Remember that discipline was a buzzword throughout Ryan’s two-year tenure in Buffalo.

Lynn added: “Players have always played hard for me. I feel like I’ve always got the most out of players. But I’ll be honest with you — I have got the most out of them because of fear. I don’t have a lot of players calling me, asking me how I’m doing. But Rex has the personality where guys call him all of the time.

“I’m probably more balanced now because I’ve been around Rex. My mom used to say you deal in truth and grace. And I probably demonstrate a little more grace with my players right now. And when you do that, they appreciate it so much. I think the relationship becomes more relational than just professional.”

Lynn is hoping this hybrid philosophy works. Or, as Lynn put it, “the big market will turn on your ass if you don’t win.”
