When the Green Bay Packers on Friday announced the addition of four new coaches to the staff and reassigned five others, it represented a significant shift within the organization, although perhaps not a seismic one. After all, only one coach was fired after the season, and it was only the assistant special teams coach.
On Monday, several of those on the Packers coaching staff will meet with the media, according to Paul Imig of FoxSportsWisconsin.com.
It will be an opportunity to hear from the new coaches for the first time and from the returning coaches about how their jobs have changed.
For a guy like Ron Zook, we’ll hear how about his transition from being the head coach of major university jobs like Universities of Florida and Illinois back to the NFL as an assistant and also about being away from coaching in general the past two years.
With Sam Gash, we’ll hear about about his plans to work with the newly named NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year, Eddie Lacy, as the running backs coach.
You can bet Alex Van Pelt will be asked about getting to work with one of the NFL’s biggest names on a daily basis when he’ll be mentoring Aaron Rodgers as the team’s quarterbacks coach.
The job of Winston Moss has also become a hotly debated one with some speculating the Packers could be moving to a 4-3 defense because Moss will be working with all the linebackers and not just the inside ones.
And we’ll also get to hear from Scott McCurley, who will be assisting Moss with the linebackers, which maybe assists in debunking the theory of a shift to the 4-3.
