The Chargers scored 19.6 points per game, which ranked 23rd in the league. Philip Rivers led the team to the sixth most passing yards per game, but the team had trouble running the ball at 69.5 yards per game, which ranked them 28th in the league.
Whisenhunt was in his second stint as offensive coordinator with the Chargers. He had the job in 2013 and took the job again before the 2016 season. He was the head coach of the Arizona Cardinals from 2007-2012 and the Tennessee Titans from 2014-2015. Whisenhunt also was the offensive coordinator for the Pittsburgh Steelers before getting head coaching jobs.
The team has not announced who will take over the offense yet in Whisenhunt’s place.
