Packers offensive coordinator, QB coach both out

Packers offensive coordinator, QB coach both out

Van Pelt was on the staff since 2012 and also served in a number of capacities. It's one of a number of changes following a season McCarthy said simply wasn't up to the organization's standards. Coach Mike McCarthy detailed some of those changes during his season-ending press conference on Thursday. Philbin spent the past two seasons as the Indianapolis Colts' assistant head coach and offensive line coach under Chuck Pagano, who was sacked earlier this week.

While the team has not made a formal announcement about the departure of veteran defensive coordinator Dom Capers, Murphy said McCarthy has the go-ahead to search for a replacement without waiting for a new GM.

The Packers have options on hand if they want to replace General Manager Ted Thompson from inside the organization and one of them will formally interview for the position on Thursday. They finished with the 21st-ranked offense - the lowest ranking for Green Bay since 2006 - while scoring just 20 points per game.

Expect the Green Bay Packers to put up a few job postings soon. "Additionally, I want to thank every player that has stepped on the field for us".


This could possibly lead to a reunion with former Packers' quarterbacks coach Ben McAdoo, who was sacked as the head coach of the New York Giants in December. Second, offensive coordinator Edgar Bennett is transitioning into a new role. The Packers' Super Bowl victory in 2010 marked the highlight of Thompson's 13-year tenure as GM.

Part of the Ron Wolf scouting tree that also includes Seahawks general manager John Schneider, Browns general manager John Dorsey and Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie, Thompson joined the Packers in 1992 as assistant director of pro personnel.

The Green Bay Packers have made changes to their coaching staff that were not limited to just the defense.

And, he insisted, numerous changes would have happened even if Minnesota Vikings linebacker Anthony Barr hadn't fractured Rodgers' right collarbone on October 15 in Minneapolis, sending a once-promising 4-1 season into a tailspin. "He cares about it, and when you see somebody who cares about it as much as Ben does, you can't help but have respect for the guy". Safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix spoke about the toll that injuries took on defense, and the need for better accountability, as the Packers cleaned out their lockers on Tuesday. He'll remain with the team as senior adviser of football operations.
