Philbin to coach vs. Giants, CBS reports

Nov. 6, 2013
 
  • Filed Under

Packers offensive coordinator Joe Philbin will coach Sunday against the Giants, according to a report from CBS' Lesley Visser. However, a Packers source said a decision has not been made and “they are going to talk tomorrow.” Philbin was absent from practice all week after his son Michael, 21, went missing last Sunday and was found dead in the Fox River in Oshkosh on Monday. The autopsy showed he drowned. The funeral, which was attended by several players, was held on Friday. Michael Philbin was in Oshkosh visiting friends and was last heard from around 2 a.m. Sunday morning on a cellphone call. On game day, Joe Philbin is one of the assistants in the coaches’ box and has a direct line to the head set of  coach Mike McCarthy, who calls the plays. Philbin, a long-time college assistant coach who joined the Packers as an assistant offensive line coach in 2003 and became coordinator in 2007, is known for his attention to details, especially when presenting plays or formations the offense might see from an opposing defense.
