Winston Moss had an unceremonious exit from his last coaching job, getting fired as associate head coach of the Packers during the season and then taking some shots at Aaron Rodgers on his way out the door. Maybe the XFL likes having coaches that brash.

Moss has been hired as the head coach of the XFL’s Los Angeles franchise, according to the Los Angeles Times.

The 53-year-old Moss is a Miami native who played college football for the Miami Hurricanes, and most of his coaching experience was in Green Bay. But he does have a connection to Los Angeles, having played for the Raiders from 1991 to 1994, when they were in Los Angeles.

Moss’s only head coaching experience was at the 2016 Pro Bowl, when he coached the team that was originally supposed to be coached by Packers head coach Mike McCarthy, who pulled out with an illness.

  1. Does anyone really care?. LA can’t support an NFL team let alone an XFL team. The only chance an XFL team has any fan base in LA is if they wear purple and yellow and call themselves the Lakers.

    This is 20 year old thinking, it’s a different world now and L.A. is a much different (and larger) place.

  3. A job coaching an XFL team is a clear indicator what kind of coach Moss really is. — He was part of the problem in GB, not a part of the solution.

  4. The XFL won’t stand a chance next year. Look at the AAF, they folded up just like that! Nothing beats the off-season games of the NFL!!!

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

    It’s hilarious that people who have no clue about LA talk about it as if they’re familiar with the city. LA and Orange County are fine for college and pro sports. We have two NFL teams, two baseball teams, two hockey teams, two basketball teams, two major college sports programs, and two soccer teams. All the teams have very healthy attendance. The ONLY exception is the Chargers and that’s because no one wanted the Chargers. They just moved in here and have one of the greediest and scummiest owners in the league, and that’s in a league with Haslam, Jones, York, Davis, Snyder, and Irsay.

  6. Moss is a weird bird. Still remember the press conference he had last preseason. Media would ask questions about defensive players and he would either not answer, or give one word answers or just shrug his shoulders. One writer finally asked him what he wants from them, and he didn’t give a real response to that either. I think he was a decent coach, but nothing special.

  7. Regarding an earlier comment, “the truth about Rodgers” is that if they were on the same team as AR, every other QB in the league, other than Brady, would be 2nd string.

  8. Moss is a turd! Why McCarthy kept that guy around for so long is beyond me!! Good luck in the soon to be folded xfl!!

  9. Why are Viking fans so insecure that they feel the need to comment on every single Packer story. It’s kind of sad and just a tad bit pathetic. And it isn’t just Packer fans that recognize this.

  10. @BigBlueAttack, it’s because a majority of these posts all stem from one person who obviously has too much time on their hands and never got quite enough attention at home.
