The Packers finalized their coaching staff today, with coach Mike McCarthy passing out a bunch of new titles to his offensive staff.
They named Tom Clements associate head coach/offense, Edgar Bennett offensive coordinator, Alex Van Pelt quarterbacks/wide receivers coach, Mike Solari assistant offensive line coach.
They also named Jerry Montgomery defensive front assistant, Ron Zook special teams coordinator and Jason Simmons assistant special teams coach.
McCarthy’s talking to the media soon, at which point he’ll get a chance to explain his moves, and how he’ll divide up the play-calling and other duties.
But going by titles, it certainly appears that Clements got a little boost, and Bennett’s being moved to a coordinator role (and presumably lacking play-calling authority) is also a sign.
Throwing an extra position group on Van Pelt’s a little curious, however.
