Packers promoted RBs coach Alex Van Pelt to QBs coach.
It's notable because Van Pelt was reportedly the top candidate to oversee new coach Mike Pettine's offense in Cleveland. A career backup as a quarterback, Van Pelt has been an NFL assistant since 2006, overseeing the Pack's running backs since 2012. Working with Aaron Rodgers will help to burnish his credentials for future promotions. Jan 23 - 4:28 PM

The Chicago Tribune reports the Bears have requested permission to interview Packers OC Tom Clements for their head-coaching vacancy.

Requesting permission is a formality in this instance, as teams must allow coordinators to interview for head-coaching jobs. They can, however, block position coaches. Clements, who replaced Joe Philbin, has been Green Bay's OC for just one season, but served as Brett Favre and Aaron Rodgers' QBs coach from 2006-11. He knows the ins and outs of an offense that's given the Bears fits in recent seasons. All the early indications are that the Bears are looking to replace Lovie Smith with an offensively-minded coach. That's good news for Jay Cutler.

Packers promoted TEs Ben McAdoo to QBs coach.

It's Green Bay's apology after it blocked McAdoo from interviewing for the Bucs' offensive coordinator job last week. He's replacing Tom Clements, who was promoted to offensive coordinator after Joe Philbin left to coach the Dolphins. McAdoo spent the previous six seasons as the Pack's TEs coach.

The Packers have blocked TEs coach Ben McAdoo from interviewing for the Bucs' offensive coordinator job.

The Pack previously blocked McAdoo from interviewing with the Dolphins. McAdoo is also the second coordinator candidate the Bucs have been denied permission to interview after the Cardinals elected not to let WRs coach John McNulty talk to his former boss Greg Schiano. McAdoo was recently passed over for the Packers' offensive coordinator job by QBs coach Tom Clements.

Packers promoted QBs coach Tom Clements to offensive coordinator.

Coach Mike McCarthy called it an "obvious decision" to promote Clements after Joe Philbin took the Dolphins job. Clements developed Aaron Rodgers and has coordinator experience going back to 2004-05 with the Bills. McCarthy will continue to be the primary play-caller in Green Bay. A native of western Pennsylvania, Clements was also believed to be on the Steelers' radar.

According to a "source familiar with the Packers' operation," QBs coach Tom Clements is expected to replace outgoing offensive coordinator Joe Philbin.

The Packers' QBs coach the past six seasons, Clements served as the Bills' offensive coordinator from 2004-05. Philbin's departure should only be a minor stumbling block for an offense that led in the NFL in scoring in 2011, as head coach Mike McCarthy has served as play-caller since arriving in Green Bay in 2006.

Sources tell the Miami Herald that Packers OC Joe Philbin is "ready to relocate" should the Dolphins offer their head coaching position.

Philbin is one of three finalists in Miami, along with interim coach Todd Bowles and Broncos OC Mike McCoy. Although two members of the Packers front office have spurned interest elsewhere to stay in Green Bay, Philbin may be looking for a fresh start following the recent tragic death of his son.

Packers OC Joe Philbin will coach in Sunday's Divisional round game six days after his son's death.

Philbin was away from the team all week, but will be in the booth at Lambeau against the Giants. The Packers split Philbin's duties amongst a number of different assistants during the practice week. As usual, coach Mike McCarthy will call the plays on Sunday.

The body of Packers OC Joe Philbin's son, Michael, was discovered and identified in Oshkosh, Wisconsin's Fox River after a police search Monday.

It's believed Michael Philbin, 21, fell through the ice early Sunday. His body was found in roughly 15 feet of water, 30 yards from shore, at around 4PM ET Monday. Michael's friends in Oshkosh filed a missing person's report Sunday night after he was nowhere to be found throughout the day. Joe Philbin, Green Bay's fifth-year offensive coordinator, is currently away from the team.

The son of Packers offensive coordinator Joe Philbin has gone missing in Oshkosh, Wisconsin.

Michael Philbin was last heard from at around 2AM Sunday after visiting friends in Oshkosh. They reported him missing on Sunday evening. The 21-year-old was sentenced to six months in jail in 2009 after he was convicted of sexually assaulting two young girls, and two counts of battery. The Packers are preparing to face the Giants in Sunday's Divisional round playoff game.

According to the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, Packers assistant director of player personnel Eliot Wolf will not follow Reggie McKenzie to Oakland.

League-wide speculation had Wolf joining McKenzie, ostensibly because his father, Ron, was heading the Raiders' front-office search. Eliot will likely end up filling McKenzie's shoes in Green Bay instead. With Wolf and director of college scouting John Dorsey staying put, the concerns about a Packers "brain drain" have been allayed.

Packers director of college scouting John Dorsey turned down an invitation to interview for the Colts GM job this week.

Dorsey is in line for a promotion with director of football operations Reggie McKenzie and perhaps assistant director of player personnel Eliot Wolf leaving for the Raiders. One source tells ESPN 540 Milwaukee that Dorsey is also "simply happy in Green Bay."

Coach Mike McCarthy's new five-year contract with the Packers has a total value of $32.25 million.

The average is $6.45 million a year, a significantly greater amount than the $5 million projected annual average. McCarthy will also receive $16 million in the first two seasons. He's suddenly one of the NFL's highest paid coaches.

Packers signed head coach Mike McCarthy to a three-year extension through 2015.

The deal, expected to be worth $5 million a year, has been in the works for weeks. McCarthy, 47, has accumulated a 53-34 (playoffs and regular season) record in five years while earning a reputation as one of the NFL's top playcallers. He's 5-2 in the playoffs, padding that mark with a 4-0 run as the NFC's 2010 Wild Card representative and Super Bowl XLV title.

Coach Mike McCarthy confirmed that extension talks with the Packers are "ongoing" and progressing as hoped.

"We're working on it," he said. "It's a work in progress." McCarthy has two years left on his current deal, but the Packers aren't wasting any time. We'd tentatively look for a new contract to be finalized before April's draft.
