The Green Bay Packers offense never really clicked under Tom Clements and head coach Mike McCarthy says he won’t be handing off play-calling duties again.
“I’ll tell you I will be calling the plays from here on in. How we structure our staff that’s really what lies ahead,” McCarthy said.
The real question now is what happens to Clements, who was promoted to assistant head coach last offseason.
Without play-calling duties, Clements’ role on the coaching staff seems redundant.
McCarthy said he expects Clements to remain on staff, though.
“Without going into total details … it wasn’t about Tom or Tom calling plays. Tom is a valued assistant coach and has been my whole time here. I fully anticipate him being back. We have a staff structure that’s under total evaluation.”
We shall see what that means.
We do know this, however. The Packers sure as hell could use a dedicated receivers coach.
