Sherman hiring could leave Packers staff intact

† Mike Sherman is back in the NFL for his third go-around as an offensive coordinator. The Miami Dolphins hired him to work under new head coach Joe Philbin, and Sherman is expected to call the plays. Sherman, who was the Packersí head coach from 2000 to 2005 and compiled a 59-43 record (.578), previously served as an offensive coordinator with Seattle under Mike Holmgren in 1999 and with Houston under Gary Kubiak in 2007. The hiring of Sherman means Philbin will likely not bring anyone with him from the Packers coaching staff. Philbin had served as the Packersí offensive coordinator for the past five seasons under Mike McCarthy. The Packers have yet to name Philbinís replacement, but quarterbacks coach Tom Clements is widely believed to be the frontrunner for the job. If that happens, there is also speculation that Ben McAdoo would move from tight ends coach to replace Clements as quarterbacks coach. That would leave McCarthy with the task of hiring a new tight ends coach. Barring new developments, it appears the Packersí defensive staff will remain the same. The only two assistants McCarthy has lost since the Packers won the Super Bowl last February are Philbin and receivers coach Jimmy Robinson.
