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

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:

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:

Mike Mallory of the Jacksonville Jaguars was formally interviewed for the Special Teams position which has not yet been filled.

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:

Luke Getsy will be returning next season as Quarterbacks coach:

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
