In a news release issued by the Packers, they confirm the firings -- reported here and elsewhere earlier -- of the entire defensive coaching staff with the exceptions of assistant head coach/linebackers coach Winston Moss and quality control assistant Joe Whitt Jr. Also fired was strength and conditioning coach Rock Gullickson.

Head coach Mike McCarthy is quoted as saying, "These are difficult decisions. I hold each of these men in high regard on a personal level, and I want to thank them for their service to the Green Bay Packers."

Stay tuned for more as the story develops.
