Philbin New Packers OC

Head Coach Mike McCarthy made it official today: offensive line coach Joe Philbin is the new offensive coordinator, replacing Jeff Jagodzinski who took the gig as the new head coach at Boston College. So, those fans responding to the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel poll last week as to who they'd prefer, Paul Hackett (rumored to be in the running as a close friend and mentor to McCarthy) or "someone else" got their wish. On the other hand, "someone else" also beat out Philbin who finished last in the online poll. Oh well...

McCarthy also promoted Winston Moss to assistant head coach/defense, James Campen to offensive line coach and Jerry Fontenot to assistant offensive line coach.

You can read all about it here.

So at least we have the coaches in place. Now...what about that QB from Southern Miss?
