Should Bill Belichick and the New England Patriots mutually part ways this offseason, it’s fair to believe the future Hall of Fame head coach will have a number of teams try to hire him.
The Los Angeles Chargers figure to be among them, especially if the team flames out en route to the postseason or in the playoffs. In his third season as the Chargers head coach, Brandon Staley seemingly has been on the hot seat since he arrived.
Longtime NFL writer Gary Myers referred to the Chargers as the “favorites” to land Belichick.
“One of my well-placed sources believe the Chargers are the favorites for Bill Belichick in 2024,” Meyers on Wednesday posted on X, formerly known as Twitter.
Myers noted how quarterback Justin Herbert leads a team ready to win now.
Myers is not the only one to draw a line connecting Belichick to the Chargers. Both NBC Sports’ Peter King and ESPN personality Stephen A. Smith included the Chargers as a potential landing spot. Many other surely have done the same given the situation surrounding LA’s coaching situation.
Belichick coaching outside of New England next season is becoming easier and easier to envision. According to The Athletic’s Dianna Russini, many inside the organization believe Belichick and the Patriots will mutually part ways this offseason. And ESPN’s Dan Orlovsky even speculated how Belichick’s next landing spot is “already determined.”
