But it didn’t take long for Pleasant to find a new job with a familiar face, all while sticking in the same division.

According to Rob Demovsky of ESPN, Pleasant has joined the Packers as an assistant coach.

Though Pleasant has been a defensive coach in the league, he’s working with head coach Matt LaFleur on the offensive side to provide a defensive perspective. Pleasant and LaFleur previously worked together on Washington’s staff under Mike Shanahan and with the Rams in 2017 under Sean McVay.
