First year Chargers Head Coach joined The Herd today to talk about what he expects heading into first season as an NFL head coach in the team’s inaugural season since relocating from San Diego.
Lynn discussed a number of football related topics, including dealing with a veteran quarterback like Phillip Rivers as a rookie head coach, and what he expects from lat year’s rookie standout Joey Bosa in year two.
But the most compelling part of the interview came when the topic of Cowboys owner Jerry Jones came up. Lynn said he will always hold Jones in high regard because when he was involved in a near fatal car accident in 2005 when he was a running backs coach with Dallas, he awoke to Jones holding his hand at his bedside. He had been at the hospital all night.
There are many second hand stories about Jones helping out Cowboys players behind the scenes, but this first hand account of Jones being there for Lynn in his time of need is proof it’s true.
