Packers lose only 1 assistant coach

Nov. 6, 2013
 
  • Filed Under

   Barring something unexpected, it appears the only assistant coach the Packers will lose this off-season is offensive coordinator Joe Philbin, who was hired last month as head coach of the Miami Dolphins.    Cornerbacks coach Joe Whitt was reportedly a candidate for the Oakland Raiders’ defensive coordinator job, but that went to Jason Tarver, the team announced today. Tarver served as co-defensive coordinator and inside linebackers coach at Stanford in 2011 after spending 10 seasons in various coaching capacities with the San Francisco 49ers.     Last month Packers defensive coordinator Dom Capers and assistant head coach Winston Moss were candidates for the Raiders’ head coaching job that eventually went to Dennis Allen.     Coach Mike McCarthy last week promoted Tom Clements from quarterbacks coach to offensive coordinator to replace Philbin. The Packers must fill Clements’ slot, and one possibility is to move tight ends coach Ben McAdoo to quarterbacks coach.   After winning the Super Bowl last year the Packers only lost wide receivers coach Jimmy Robinson.
