Packers staff loses Evero, adds McGarigle
GREEN BAY – There have been no significant changes to the Green Bay Packers coaching staff, but not every position will remain the same in 2017.
Defensive quality control coach Ejiro Evero left the Packers and was named Los Angeles Rams safeties coach under new head coach Sean McVay, the Rams announced. Evero spent one season with the Packers after five years with the San Francisco 49ers.
With the Packers, Evero was responsible for breaking down opponent game film and analyzing their offensive tendencies, playbook development, compiling team and player reports and coordinating the opponent scout teams the starting defense would face at practice, according to the team's website.
The Packers hired University of Illinois linebackers coach Tim McGarigle to be their defensive quality control coach for linebackers, the school announced. McGarigle, who was at Western Michigan for four years before spending one season with the Illini, will work under Packers linebackers coach Winston Moss and inside linebackers assistant Scott McCurley.
