Packers Will Need A New Receivers Coach

The Green Bay Packers will be in the market for a new receivers coach once the season ends. Luke Getsy is reportedly moving on to become the offensive coordinator and receivers coach at Mississippi State.

Getsy played quarterback while Bulldogs coach Joe Moorhead was on the offensive staff at Akron. He also served as a graduate assistant under him.

Getsy has been the Packers’ receivers coach for the past two seasons. Prior to that he was the team’s offensive quality control coach for two seasons, whatever that means.

The Packers haven’t had a lot consistency at receivers coach lately. In 2015, coach Mike McCarthy made the folly of giving quarterbacks coach Alex Van Pelt the extra role of receivers coach. That lasted all of one year. So this will be the team’s third receivers coach in four seasons.

Unless there is someone great on the market from outside the organization, like there was when McCarthy brought in Ben Sirmans to coach running backs and Brian Angelichio to coach tight ends, Getsy’s replacement will likely come from inside the organization.

The leading candidate if the Packers promote from within is likely offensive perimeter coach David Raih.

    Edgar Bennett was great, but he will not demote himself to WR coach.

    Is Edgar bennett to busy as the non play calling offensive coordinator?

      He has to devise the playbook, filling it with predictable plays.
