The Lynn Family Foundation is dedicated to helping individuals recognize and achieve their potential in their personal and professional lives through mentorship, scholarships and experiences.
Both Anthony and Stacey are grateful for the opportunities and support they received that helped them have successful career paths and the life they now have together. While they are living on opposite coasts, given their careers with Anthony in Los Angeles and Stacey in New York, they continue to carry out their professional and personal passions while working to provide opportunities for others to do the same.
Anthony became the head coach of the Los Angeles Chargers in 2017. He began his career as an undrafted rookie out of college and spent seven seasons in the NFL. When he was with the Denver Broncos, he won two, back-to-back Super Bowl championships. After his playing career ended in 2000, he immediately went into coaching. His career has included being the special teams assistant coach for the Denver Broncos, the running backs coach for the Jacksonville Jaguars, Dallas Cowboys and Cleveland Browns. While he was with the New York Jets, he was assistant head coach. He started With the Buffalo Bills
as the offensive coordinator before being promoted to interim head coach for the Buffalo Bills in 2015 and 2016.
Despite a busy and successful career, Anthony was determined to finish his college degree after starting it 26 years prior. In 2018, he received his bachelor’s degree in interdisciplinary studies from the University of Nevada – Las Vegas. He debated not attending the graduation ceremony to walk on the stage and get his diploma, but decided to attend. He thought if his story inspired someone and encouraged players to finish their degrees, it was worth the travel and missing the final two days of rookie mini-camp. Plus, the Chargers’ owner said it sent a stronger message than he could give on that practice field.
Outside of football, Anthony is passionate about his faith and helping others.
Stacey started her career in 2002 at WJW Fox 8 News in Cleveland where she won two Emmys for her work. Over 10 years later, she moved to Long Island where she worked as an anchor for News 12 for two years. She is a current co-anchor at NBC 4 New York and was recognized in 2017 with a regional Edward R. Murrow Award for NBC 4 New York’s team coverage of the Tribeca terror attacks. She holds a bachelor’s degree in mass communications with a minor in English from the University of Central Arkansas.
Outside the newsroom, Stacey is passionate about mentoring girls and young women.
