GREEN BAY — The
Green Bay Packers promoted Luke Getsy to receivers coach Wednesday and
hired Brian Angelichio as tight ends coach, Ben Sirmans as running
backs coach, David Raih as assistant offensive line coach and Ejiro
Evero as defensive quality control coach.
Tom Clements remains
on coach Mike McCarthy's staff with the same title but different
duties. Last offseason, McCarthy handed the play-calling duties to
Clements and promoted him to associate head coach/offense. However, in
December, McCarthy took back the play-calling chores. After the
playoff loss at Arizona, McCarthy said he would "be calling the
plays from here on in."
Getsy joined the
Packers in 2014, serving as offensive quality control coach the past
two seasons. Getsy, who coached wide receivers at Western Michigan in
2013, worked closely alongside Alex Van Pelt in the
quarterbacks/receivers room last year. Van Pelt, a former NFL
quarterback, will be entering his third season in charge of Aaron
Rodgers and the rest of the quarterbacks.
Sirmans replaces Sam
Gash, who was fired after the season. Sirmans spent the past four
seasons as the Rams' running backs coach.
Jerry Fontenot, who was fired after the season. Angelichio spent the
past two seasons as the Browns' tight ends coach.
Raih replaces Mike
Solari, who was hired as the Giants' offensive line coach this week.
Raih, a former quarterback at Iowa, has been with the Packers since
2014 as a coaching administrator.
Evero spent the past
five seasons with the 49ers, the last two as a defensive assistant.
