Green Bay Packers Coaching Staff to look very different in 2012

By richardvalente

So here we are, 2 weeks removed from the divisional playoff loss, and already there looks to be some major changes on the horizon.  First and foremost, there is the loss of offensive coordinator, Joe Philbin, who took the head coaching job in Miami.  Obviously, you can’t fault  a guy for taking a promotion, and in this case, a move from the city where he just lost his son, but this could have a bigger impact than one may think.  There’s the question of who of his fellow coaches from Green Bay he may take along with him.  The loss of multiple coaches from the offense would mean new guys coming in and new schemes being put into place and revised playbooks for the offense to learn.  Do I think this will have a huge impact on the way the offense runs, maybe not huge, but it will have some impact as far as new terminology, routes and so forth.  There is also the possibility of Dom Capers getting a head coaching job in Oakland.  While the defense wasn’t all that good this year, this is a team that led the league in takeaways and a lot of that had to do with the gameplanning of Capers.  Also, if he goes, who is he going to take along with him?  When a team finishes the seaaon 15-1, obviously the coaching staff is going to be looked at by other organizations for open positions.  Let’s just hope that with all the holes that need to be filled on offense and defense, that there aren’t a ton of holes that will need to be filled in the coaching staff as well.  This is shaping up to be a very busy offseason for the Pack.
