Green Bay, WI (Sports Network) - Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy
announced a few changes to the club's offensive staff on Monday.
Jerry Fontenot will move from running backs coach to tight ends coach for
2012, while Ben McAdoo will switch from tight ends coach to quarterbacks
coach. Alex Van Pelt will join the club as the new running backs coach.
Fontenot has spent the past six seasons in various offensive roles with the
Packers, serving as assistant offensive line coach from 2007-10 before taking
over the running backs last season.
McAdoo had been the tight ends coach for the past six seasons, while Van Pelt
-- a former quarterback for the Buffalo Bills from 1995-2003 -- had been the
quarterbacks coach for Tampa Bay the past two seasons. He also spent four
years with the Bills' staff, first as offensive quality control coach from
2006-07, then as quarterbacks coach in 2008 and offensive coordinator in 2009.
The Packers also named Joel Hilgenberg assistant offensive line coach and John
Rushing offensive assistant/special teams.
