Three Former Colts Coaches Hired By Packers

Three Former Colts Coaches Hired By Packers”

Pettine should be a major upgrade from Dom Capers as the Packers' defensive coordinator.

The Green Bay Packers unveiled their new coaching staff on Wednesday.

Philbin was the Indianapolis Colts assistant head coach and offensive line coach the past two seasons, but he spent nine seasons with the Packers from 2003 through 2011, filling a variety of roles.

The team made some big personnel decisions after a 7-9 season and failing to make the playoffs. Montgomery, who'd been the team's defensive front coach last season, had accepted a job earlier this month to coach Texas A&M's defensive line coach under new Aggies head coach Jimbo Fisher. The team has won a grand total of one game in two seasons since he was sacked.

Prior to Green Bay, Montgomery worked as a defensive line coach at Oklahoma, Michigan and Wyoming.

Pettine coached the Browns to a 10-22 record in 2014 and 2015.

In 2017, the Packers ranked 26th in offensive yardage and 21st in scoring, although the absence of quarterback Aaron Rodgers for much of the season undoubtedly had an impact on Green Bay's offensive production. His first year, punter Pat McAfee lead the league in punting average (49.3) and was third in net punting average (42.7), and the following season, after McAfee retired, undrafted rookie punter Rigoberto Sanchez finished fourth in the league in net punting average (42.6) and was named to the Pro Football Writers Association's NFL All-Rookie Team.

Just when the silly season that is the coaching carousel seemed to be winding down, you get a story like this one.

Of the remainder of the assistants, some are new and numerous holdovers received new titles. We knew the offensive coordinator would be Joe Philbin. Under them, several new coaches and several new titles were added to the staff.

On offense, Frank Cignetti takes over as quarterbacks coach after Alex Van Pelt allowed his contract to expire in hopes of landing a coordinator position elsewhere. He also worked as a coaching assistant for the Cleveland Browns.

Downard was the safeties coach at Bowling Green.
