Tom Oates: GM hire holds key to Mike McCarthy's future in Green Bay

Mike McCarthy on what he wants in a new GM for the Packers

In addition, two league sources said the team was not bringing back quarterbacks coach Alex Van Pelt, whose contract had expired. Despite the one-year contract extension McCarthy received during the just-concluded season that will take him through 2019, he could be looking at his last season in Green Bay. Philbin was the Colts' offensive line coach last season.

Associate head coach Winston Moss, cornerbacks coach Joe Whitt Jr., and safeties coach Darren Perry are three internal candidates to replace Dom Capers as defensive coordinator.

Thompson was in his second year as the Packers general manager and had previously worked in Green Bay's front office from 1992-2000.

On defense, McCarthy said holdover assistants Winston Moss, Joe Whitt and Darren Perry are candidates for the defensive coordinator position after Dom Capers was sacked this week.

While it's not fair to say the lack of success in Green Bay is all his fault. his piece of the pie is definitely the biggest.

The former Giants coach's potential path back to Green Bay has emerged. "I love it here, I want to be here, but it has to fit for me, too", McCarthy said. That will fall clearly under what's best for the Green Bay Packers.


The vocal minority who have exhausted of McCarthy probably wouldn't mind that, but Murphy's decision ultimately could cost the Packers one of the NFL's top coaches.

Now changes are being made on offense. Offensive coordinator Edgar Bennett?

"The part that no one wants to talk about is the personal aspect of it".

Thompson was hired as the Packers' general manager in 2005, and the team had a 125-82-1 record and won Super Bowl XLV under his watch. "It's going to be different, we're going to have some different voices, some different faces in here", said kicker Mason Crosby, one of the team's longest tenured players.

Regardless of the coaching staff changes, there will be a lot of pressure on the new general manager. Safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix spoke about the toll that injuries took on defense, and the need for better accountability, as the Packers cleaned out their lockers on Tuesday.

Although the winds of change are blowing through all levels of the Green Bay Packers football operation, it's possible we haven't seen anything yet.
