Packers Defensive Staff Stays Intact
Despite rampant speculation that one or more of the Green Bay Packers defensive assistant coaches would get a defensive coordinator position with another team this offseason, the team’s defensive staff will remain as it was in 2010.
The Oakland Raiders, who had the lone remaining opening at defensive coordinator, have filled the position with Chuck Bresnahan, who they hired a little over a month ago as a defensive coach without a formal position.
Bresnahan served as the Raiders defensive coordinator from 2000-03.
Packers inside linebackers coach [intlink id=”304″ type=”category”]Winston Moss[/intlink] and safeties coach [intlink id=”462″ type=”category”]Darren Perry[/intlink] had been mentioned as possibilities for the opening in Oakland, as well as the ones in Arizona and Philadelphia, which were filled in the last couple months.
Surprisingly, the Super Bowl champs lost only one assistant coach this offseason. Receivers coach Jimmy Robinson left to take the same position with the Dallas Cowboys.
