The Detroit Lions fired offensive coordinator Anthony Lynn on Monday.
Head coach Dan Campbell announced the move during his season-ending press conference.
Lynn's offense showed signs of life over the last six weeks of the season with a pair of 29-point games, 30 points in a win over the Arizona Cardinals and 37 in Sunday's win over the Green Bay Packers.
But Detroit (3-13-1) was one of the worst in the NFL in scoring (325 points), third downs (34.7 percent) and passing (211.6 yards per game).
Quarterback Jared Goff also improved his numbers late in the season but averaged just 6.6 yards per attempt.
Lynn, 53, spent the four previous seasons as head coach of the Los Angeles Chargers, where he went 33-31. Campbell hired Lynn, a former NFL running back, as his offensive coordinator in January 2021.
