The Packers have shuffled some titles while finalizing their staff, including some of the moves previously mentioned today.
Winston Moss, who was previously assistant head coach/inside linebackers, will now lose the “inside” from that title. That keeps them from hiring anyone to replace former outside linebackers coach Kevin Greene, who stepped away last month.
Scott McCurley will be the assistant linebackers coach, but there’s no one specific listed to coach just the outside linebackers.
They also moved running backs coach Alex Van Pelt to quarterbacks, and have named Jason Simmons defensive/special teams assistant, John Rushing defensive quality control coach, Sam Gash running backs coach, Ron Zook assistant special teams coach, Luke Getsy offensive quality control coach and Chris Gizzi strength and conditioning assistant.
Former special teams assistant Chad Morton was also “released,” which means fired.
“The offseason is progressing with the finalization of adjustments and additions to our coaching staff,” head coach Mike McCarthy said. “Every day and every decision has the focus on bringing the Lombardi Trophy back to Green Bay. The evaluation process will continue with a vision to change, adjust or emphasize any aspect of our program to help us reach the attainable goal of another Super Bowl championship.”
Zook taking the assistant special teams job is interesting, given that he has 34 years of coaching experience and that’s usually an entry level job.
