Charger's coach Brandon Staley said, “competing visions” were the reason for Tillery's release.

“Competing visions for the role moving forward and it just became clear that it wasn't going to be a fit anymore,” Staley said when asked what changed since the trade deadline. “Where we're headed as a team wasn't going to be compatible with Jerry and where he's trying to go.”
