The Green Bay Packers have reportedly interviewed Notre Dame assistant coach Tony Alford, according to 247Sports.com.
Where Alford would fit onto the staff of the Packers is up for speculation.
Once former offensive coordinator Joe Philbin was hired as the new head coach of the Miami Dolphins, it set off a domino-falling effect in Green Bay.
Former quarterbacks coach Tom Clements has been promoted to offensive coordinator, and earlier today it was learned that Ben McAdoo would be taking over as the new quarterbacks coach.
If the Packers continue to go the route of staying in-house, perhaps the next move would be a promotion for John Rushing from assistant wide receivers/special teams coach to tight ends coach, presumably leaving another spot open on the staff if they choose to fill it.
In addition to the recent move by McAdoo, the Packers have shuffled the duties of several assistant coaches under head coach Mike McCarthy. This past season Edgar Bennett made the move from running backs to wide receivers coach while Jerry Fontenot moved from assistant offensive line to running backs coach.
Alford has been both a wide receivers and running backs coach at Notre Dame.
