Packers name Thompson advisor, search firm will find new GM

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

Van Pelt joined the Packers organization in 2012, and was in his second season coaching the QB's.

McCarthy spoke numerous times about fit on Thursday during his season-ending news conference. He was promoted to coaching administrator in January 2007 and to defensive quality control coach on February 3, 2009.

The Green Bay Packers will likely hire from within their organization to replace former general manager Ted Thompson, who was relieved of those duties earlier this week.

Green Bay also announced that it has let go of defensive coordinator Dom Capers, assistant linebackers coach Scott McCurley, and defensive line coach Mike Trgovac. In all, Green Bay defenders have made 17 appearances in the Pro Bowl during Capers' tenure.

Ha Ha Clinton-Dix didn't mince words when he pointed out that the Green Bay Packers' draft-and-develop philosophy - or lack thereof - was a big problem for the defense's depth this season. A league source said cornerbacks coach Joe Whitt and safeties coach Darren Perry are both candidates for the job, though McCarthy figures to take long looks at outside candidates as well. When McCarthy became Packers head coach in 2006, McAdoo became his tight ends coach.

So far the Packers have made four great moves to be successful going forward: new GM, new defensive coordinator, Davante Adams' four-year $58 million deal, Corey Linsley's three-year $25.5 million deal.

McCarthy lamented the "personal aspect" of the changes, which he said is "what keeps me up at night".

And most (but not all) of the team's failures since the Super Bowl can be traced to personnel shortages more than coaching.

"When you say you have a standard at the Green Bay Packers, it stops right there", McCarthy said. "We had a hell of a partnership for 12 years".

Who do you think should take over as the new offensive coordinator?

Needless to say, the Packers are not messing around.

As the Green Bay Packers go through changes in the front office and coaching staff during the off-season, stability will remain at the head-coaching position for another year. "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.
