Fontenot doesn't expect major adjustments

Newly tabbed Packers tight ends coach Jerry Fontenot will be coaching his third position in three years when the team begins its offseason sessions. He was an assistant offensive line coach from 2007-10, switched to running backs in 2011 and now to the tight ends. Fontenot doesn't think there will be a major adjustment for him over the past 36 months. "It's just going to be a matter of getting more into the passing game because running backs are more involved in the passing game than offensive linemen. So that was an adjustment," Fontenot said. "This will probably be even more of an adjustment into the pass game, but reverting back to some more offensive line run-blocking schemes because we’re going to be in-line most of the time. We can line up off the ball just like running backs. That’s going to be consistent. "The one area is my getting knowledge or route-running fundamentals and schemes."
