In a surprising move, the Los Angeles Chargers fired offensive coordinator Ken Whisenhunt on Monday.
"This is not an easy decision and definitely not one that I take lightly," Chargers coach Anthony Lynn said in a statement. "You win as a team, and you lose as a team. It's never about just one person. At the end of the day, however, I simply felt a change was needed at this time. I want to thank Ken for his years of service to the Chargers organization and wish him nothing but the best moving forward."
The Chargers (3-5) have struggled to move the football, averaging just 19.6 points per contest, which ranks 23rd in the NFL. The real struggle is running the ball, where it's been four-straight games with under 40 rushing yards - ironically all with Gordon back.
