NFL Head Coaches, Ranked from Worst to Best

29. Brandon Staley, Los Angeles Chargers

Brandon Staley didn’t have to change area codes after signing on with his new team. The former Los Angeles Rams defensive coordinator agreed to become the new Chargers head coach back on January 17 — a day after the Rams were eliminated from the postseason. Critics will point to the Rams’ overwhelming talent as the main catalyst for the defense’s success, but Staley has a chance to silence all naysayers. Although, the Chargers have plenty of defensive playmakers, as well. If Staley gets healthy seasons from Nick Bosa and Derwin James, then Justin Herbert and that offense could help guide the first-year head coach to a successful rookie season.
