Packers Dismiss OC, Quarterback Coach

Packers Dismiss OC, Quarterback Coach

Van Pelt joined the Packers organization in 2012, and was in his second season coaching the QB's.

The news on Bennett's situation broke shortly before the Packers officially announced the team had parted ways with defensive coordinator Dom Capers, defensive line coach Mike Trgovac and assistant linebackers coach Scott McCurley - moves that actually happened earlier this week in the wake of the team's season-ending 35-11 loss at Detroit on Sunday. He was promoted to coaching administrator in January 2007 and to defensive quality control coach on February 3, 2009.

Capers had been defensive coordinator since 2009.

One of the NFL's most stable and successful franchises has embarked an offseason of change The Green Bay Packers are replacing Ted Thompson as general manager. That will fall clearly under what's best for the Green Bay Packers. "I'm more focused on the fit of the GM", McCarthy said.

Unlike his predecessor, Mike Sherman, who became coach and GM after Ron Wolf retired and before the jobs were separated again with the hiring of Thompson in 2005, McCarthy doesn't believe a dual role is feasible.

Edgar Bennett is no longer offensive coordinator, though he may stay with the team in another capacity. That will fall clearly under what's best for the Green Bay Packers. That's what keeps me up at night is the personal changes that you make. "I've been fortunate to have worked with many dedicated people throughout the organization and I can't thank Mark Murphy, Mike McCarthy, the football-operations staff and our scouts enough for their friendship and support", said Thompson. The Packers won the Super Bowl in 2010, have played in four NFC championship games and earned eight consecutive playoff berths before a major injury to quarterback Aaron Rodgers derailed the 2017 season. "It's going to be different, we're going to have some different voices, some different faces in here", said kicker Mason Crosby, one of the team's longest tenured players. Will there be any more coaching changes?

"The draft-and-develop still needs to be the core of who you are", McCarthy said.

ESPN's Rob Demovsky reports ex-Giants coach Ben McAdoo is a candidate for the Packers' offensive-coordinator job.

Needless to say, the Packers are not messing around.
