Alford interviews with Packers

Nov. 6, 2013
 
  • Filed Under

Notre Dame assistant coach Tony Alford interviewed for a position with the Green Bay Packers, the Chicago Tribune reported. Alford said he was not formally offered, but decided to return to the Irish to coach running backs, slot receivers and coordinate the recruiting efforts. “I'm a college guy,” Alford told the Tribune on Friday. “I like watching guys grow and become men. That sounds like a cliché, but I truly believe that. “Some people tell me I'm crazy and that's not the way to go about it – and that's fine. That's the way I'm going about it." It’s assumed that Alford interviewed for the tight ends position previously held by Ben McAdoo, considering that is the only unfilled position on the staff. McAdoo was promoted to quarterbacks coach after Tom Clements was bumped to offensive coordinator once Joe Philbin was hired as coach of the Miami Dolphins.
