The Packers announced three new coaching hires Thursday: Kirk Olivadotti will coach the team’s inside linebackers, Justin Outten the tight ends and Adam Stenavich the offensive line.

Olivadotti has spent the past 16 seasons as a coach in the NFL, all with Washington. He is one of 11 members of the team’s assistant coach honor roll, which recognizes coaches with at least 10 seasons of service as an assistant in Washington.

Outten was the offensive assistant for the Falcons the past two seasons. He began with the Falcons as an offensive intern in 2016.

Stenavich comes to the Packers after serving as the assistant offensive line coach for the 49ers the past two seasons. He spent six years in the college ranks before joining the 49ers.

  1. It just keeps getting better for the Vikings and Bears. Welcome back to the 70’s and early 80’s Pack fans

  2. Hahaha, gotta love the ridiculous blind optimism of Bears and Vikings fans. Getting McCarthy away from Rodgers, will be their worst nightmare. Can’t wait to hear about how Cousins and Trubisky are suddenly better than the QB on the Packers. Hilarious.

  3. “This was a lateral move”

    =================

    LaFleur and Olivadotti worked together in 2010 in Washington and there was mutual interest on both sides.

    LaFleur asked permission for the interview and when a coach(Olivadotti) wants to be somewhere else you really are working against yourself if you block him from leaving.

    While it would be great to have a QB like Rodgers, Trubisky and Cousins don’t need to be better than Rodgers to succeed. They both have excellent defenses and were better than the Packers last year. The Bears were a very cohesive unit. The Packers, not so much, and it remains to be seen if they will be. Rodgers has a pretty fragile ego and he seems to want things his way, and LaFleur is untested as a head coach. He has his hands full with Rodgers.
