The Packers are reportedly making a change to their coaching staff.

The club is parting ways with assistant special teams coach Chad Morton, Mike Vandermause of the Green Bay Press-Gazette reported on Tuesday.

The 36-year-old Morton had spent the last four seasons assisting the Packers’ special teams.

Morton played seven NFL seasons (2000-2006), with stints with the Saints, Jets, Redskins and Giants. He played collegiately at USC.

    Too late for him to interview for the head coach position in Cleveland, I imagine.

    I hope this is a signal that the Packers are willing to make changes. They seemed so content to continue with the status quo until now it’s clear they are falling behind several teams. They also need to look at the conditioning coaches. When you are constantly near the top of the league in games lost to injury, something is wrong.

    Now he is free to sign with the Vikings, they seem to sign anybody that doesn’t make the cut with the Packers.

    The Pack hasn’t had good special teams since Nolan Cromwell left.

    If they think “Salty” was the cause of their problems, they’re in for a rude awakening. Maybe they should fire whoever is in charge of conditioning and finding a backup quarterback.

    After watching Seattle this year, I’m not sure that the Packers biggest loss in the last 10 years wasn’t John Schneider, the Hawks GM.

    He has all the talent evaluation skills of TT, but applies them to free agency too. TT will just ignore that tool in his toolbox and build through the draft only. Seattle shows what the combination of the two can result in. Hell, Seattle got Marshawn Lynch for a 4th round draft pick, TT could have had him for that but stayed with his current players. That didn’t pan out so well until they drafted Lacy 2 years later.
