I thought so, but then Bobby said his dad has been dead since right after season 2.
Still not impossible though, it is Lynch after all.
Bobby says: "Cooper was the last person to see my father alive. [according to Bobby's mother] Cooper had come by the house and talked to my dad. And I guess Cooper left town pretty soon after that. My Dad died in a fire at his station the next day."
On the surface, it does sound like this happened before Cooper disappeared following the events of Season 2, but Bobby doesn't explicitly say that. In fact, Hawk is very surprised to hear this news, stating that Coop hasn't been seen in 25 years.
When the Bad Coop is talking to "Phillip Jeffries", "Jeffries" says to Coop: "You met with Major Garland Briggs.", to which Coop replies in a surprised tone: "How did you know that?"
It sounds like Cooper met with Briggs relatively recently, but maybe not. As Jeffries said in FWWM, I don't have a lot to go on.
