Tight End coach Brian Angelichio will not be returning next year. Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports that he will be replaced by OL coach Justin Outten from the Falcons
#Packers TE coach Brian Angelichio won't return as first thought. Matt LaFleur has decided to hire #Falcons quality control / asst. OL coach Justin Outten to replace him. Angelichio is another one of the McCarthy position coaches who won't be back. He'll find another job.
I’ll spare you the rewrite and just copy/past his bio from the Falcons page:
Justin Outten is entering his second season as an offensive assistant for the Falcons. Before joining the staff full time, Outten was as an offensive intern for the Falcons during the 2016 season. Before joining the Falcons, he worked at Spring Westfield High School as the Assistant Head Coach/Offensive Coordinator/Offensive Line Coach from 2008-16. During that time, he helped coached 24 offensive linemen that received scholarships to play on the collegiate level, and he also coached one high school All-American during his time at the high school.
Before coaching at Spring Westfield, Outten worked as a graduate assistant at Syracuse University where he worked with the offensive line from 2007-08. Outten played at Syracuse from 2002-07, where he was the starting center for three years. During his time playing for the Orange, he was selected as a team captain and played a part in his team become Big East Champions in 2004. Outten was also a recipient of the Ray Martino Award for loyalty, enthusiasm, and perseverance.
Outten is a native of Doylestown, PA.
Also from Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reporter Tom Silverstein comes news that the Packers have hired Baltimore Ravens scout Milt Hendrickson:
Former #Ravens national scout Milt Hendrickson has officially accepted a senior personnel department position with the #Packers and is with GM Brian Gutekunst in Mobile, Ala., for the Senior Bowl, a source said.
His relationship with Brian Gutekunst goes back 20 years since Wisconsin-La Crosse. They were students at the same time and also later worked as assistant coaches under Roger Harring. Supposedly the Packers tried to hire him last year but the Ravens would not allow it. Hendrickson spent 14 years with the Ravens as a scout. He is already being put to use by being sent to the Senior Bowl in Mobile, Alabama.
Darren Rizzi is probably out of consideration as special teams coach:
#Packers are starting to explore other options for special teams coach. They interviewed #Dolphins ST coach Darren Rizzi last week, but they must not have bowled him over because there has been no hire. His only visit so far has been GB and they let him leave without a deal.
Mike Mallory of the Jacksonville Jaguars was formally interviewed for the Special Teams position which has not yet been filled.
GB has interviewed #Jaguars assistant special teams coordinator, Mike Mallory. The #Jaguars finished 4th in special teams this year. Important to note he was the Special teams coordinator from 2013-2016 which he was then demoted after finishing 27th in 2016.
Mallory has been coaching in the NFL since 2008 – most recently as assistant special teams coach for the Jacksonville Jaguars from 2013 to 2016. He was demoted after a tumultuous season in 2016. Prior to working with the Jaguars, he was assistant special teams coordinator for the New Orleans Saints from 2008 to 2012. He would be replacing the recently departed Ron Zook.
Tom Quinn was also recently interviewed for the position:
Another special teams coach the #Packers have talked to is #Giants assistant Tom Quinn. He was ST coordinator from 2007- '17. New coach Pat Shurmur fired him a year ago but brought him back as an assistant when new ST coach Thomas McGaughey was undergoing cancer treatment.
Luke Getsy will be returning next season as Quarterbacks coach:
The Packers are bringing back Luke Getsy as quarterbacks coach, according to sources. Getsy coached the Packers receivers before becoming Mississippi State's offensive coordinator last season. https://t.co/pA9uJPpwoj
As mentioned, this will smooth the transition for Rodgers and LaFleur next season with a familiar and respected face. Not a bad move at all. See Also: Past coverage of Luke Getsy on TP.com
