Packers Make Unexpected Coaching Decision

The Packers made an unexpected coaching decision this week.

Despite critical comments about the defense from head coach Matt LaFleur, Green Bay will not be firing defensive coordinator Mike Pettine this offseason.

Fresh off a disappointing NFC Championship Game defeat to the San Francisco 49ers, LaFleur made headlines when he suggested that a change at DC was not out of the question.

“We’re still working through everything right now, just trying to evaluate everything,” LaFleur said.

“It just wasn’t good enough, especially when you get to a championship game like that and you know what’s at stake. Just all across the board.”

On Wednesday, LaFleur came back and clarified his earlier remarks.

Despite his squad giving up an average of 30 points in back-to-back games against the Seattle Seahawks and 49ers, there will be no major changes on the defensive side of the ball.


That said, Pettine is obviously on a short leash at this point. Things on that side of the ball need to improve.

If things don’t change defensively early next season, don’t be surprised if LaFleur ultimately pulls the trigger and gets himself a new coordinator.
