Chargers coach Anthony Lynn returns to team facility in Costa Mesa

In a normal year, this likely would have been the week that Chargers coach Anthony Lynn greeted 90 players for mandatory minicamp.

This, of course, isn’t a normal year.

Lynn’s arrival Tuesday to the team’s facility was a quiet one inside the Costa Mesa building, but notable because it was the first time he worked in his office since March. NFL facilities were closed two months for coronavirus precautions and gradually reopened last month. Coaches were allowed to return last week.

Instead of holding a players attendance sheet, Lynn pushed a red cart with his belongings while wearing a powder blue Chargers face mask.

The Chargers’ fourth-year head coach is back in the building, but he’s been busy, especially in the past two weeks. Lynn’s powerful words regarding police brutality, racism and the George Floyd protests have inspired his players. He’s had deep conversations with them in virtual meetings. Now, the next step would be to reunite with his players in person.

On Monday, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell sent a memo to teams with protocols for allowing players to return to facilities in the coming weeks. No dates have been set and no minicamps are expected, according to NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero. But rookies and veterans who changed teams and need physicals could be allowed to return to facilities on a limited basis before June 26, Pelissero reported.

The Chargers likely won’t be back on the practice field until next month for training camp. Lynn and his players will continue to make adjustments during this upcoming unusual season.
