Philbin: Winston Moss was let go because of ‘fit’ with team
GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — Packers interim head coach Joe Philbin said that it wasn't easy to let associate head coach Winston Moss go from the coaching staff, but that he came to the decision because he "just didn't feel like the fit right now was where it needs to be."
Packers part with associate head coach Winston Moss
GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — The Green Bay Packers have parted ways with Winston Moss, the associate head coach in charge of linebackers and a 13-year veteran of the staff
Interim head coach Joe Philbin announced the move late Tuesday, two days after coach Mike McCarthy was fired. Moss was an 11-year NFL veteran linebacker. He has been an NFL assistant for 20 years in all and the associate head coach in Green Bay the past four years.
INDIANAPOLIS -- Coach Mike McCarthy and the Packers find themselves in unfamiliar territory this offseason coming off a 7-9 season, their first non-playoff campaign since 2008, and also the last time they didn’t finish above .500.
GREEN BAY — When Mike McCarthy introduced his reconfigured staff last week, the Green Bay Packers head coach did so with one position still uncertain: Whether longtime safeties coach Darren Perry would return or not.
On Monday, that answer came. Perry and the Packers parted ways, with the team announcing that Perry would pursue other opportunities.
Allen Park — The Detroit Lions' search for a new head coach will turn to a pair of divisional options Thursday, when the team's brain trust sits down with Minnesota offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur and Green Bay linebackers and associate head coach Winston Moss.
Packers looking for depth behind Matthews, Perry at OLB
GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — With Clay Matthews and Nick Perry, the Green Bay Packers feel great about their starting outside linebackers.
The depth hasn't quite developed, though, which is why the team hosted free agent Ahmad Brooks on Tuesday. Brooks, a two-time second-team All-Pro, was released by the San Francisco 49ers last week.
Datone Jones looks to bolster Packers defense
GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — Running back Eddie Lacy isn't the only Green Bay Packer who slimmed down in the offseason.
While Lacy isn't saying how many pounds he lost in his workouts with fitness expert Tony Horton, a leaner Datone Jones has been forthcoming about his weight loss.
Jones said he's shed about 15 pounds since last season in the defensive lineman's conversion to playing more at outside linebacker.
