Perhaps the biggest voice in Chargers quarterback Justin Herbert’s ear moving forward has been decided.
Joe Lombardi, who’s spent the past five seasons coaching quarterbacks for the Saints, has agreed to terms with the Chargers to be their offensive coordinator, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported.
Lombardi’s hiring was made official by the team on Monday afternoon.
The 49-year old who spent two stints with the Saints (2007-13 and 2016-2020) was previously the offensive coordinator for the Lions in 2014 and 2015.
Lombardi is the grandson of NFL coaching legend Vince Lombardi.
