Cool all-access piece from last month on new San Diego Chargers head coach Anthony Lynn. For the article, a Chargers.com writer tailed Lynn for a full day on the job as he traveled from his office to various meetings to the practice field and back. There’s good stuff in here on how much time Lynn has spent getting to know his coaches, Lynn’s thoughts on organizational structure, and how the role of a head coach differs than that of an assistant. I appreciate Brandon Chambers for passing this article along.
Communication, accountability and transparency are pillars of organizational health. This is something I value deeply, and what I said I would emphasize when I interviewed for the job. I met with each coach and explained the point of the exercise. We had a lot of conversations together, and by the time we were finished, we learned so much about one another and what we value. About the type of men we are. We came out of this with stronger relationships, and we charted ground rules for healthy conflict.
