Coombs was not under consideration for O C job.

But Monken, is under consideration for OC according to a report.  You may recall that he was with Tampa and was interviewed for the head job.

Interesting idea- his name was being bandied about at HC candidate earlier during the season and Zimmer has a reputation as being hired as offensive coordinator

In other news Hacket, the former Jax coach is in Green Bay today to talk about the HC job according to Rappaport

And Demonsky poured water on the idea that Coombs will be special teams coach

What I find weird about that is HOW does a guy go from assistant ST's coach to an OC?

Something fishy I think.

No TE was surprising. And is Jenks the edge rusher the team needs? Also, I believe the Packers will go after a safety in FA. There are several who will be available. So I'd personally go for an ER at #12. The three OL was also a surprise, but probably needed. So, thanks for the input. Overall, well done.

This is going to be an albatross around MM's neck when he interviews elsewhere. Why did he allow the offense to grow predictable and stale? Was it stubborness or lack of creativity? And why did the team become complacent? Excessive loyalty and Aaron Rodgers. The former meant he'd   keep low performing assistants and players around because of familiarity, and not play guys who were good because he didn't like them (Aaron Jones, apparently). As far as AR goes, why worry when you knew he'd pull a miracle play out when needed to win the game? Has the game "passed him by"? Because it seems the NFL is going for the younger, "next Sean McVey" rather than retreads. Kliff Kingsbury? Seriously?

I really could care less about MM's future and how his past may affect it.

He's a big boy, let him deal with "whatever".

Belichick's coaching skills dont transfer.  You gotta have him in the mix.  McVay's may not either.  He's pretty bright, and we'll see how his understudies do with other teams.

Long term winning teams do have coaching turnover due to other teams taking their coaches. It keeps things competitive amoungst coaches and they are forced to bring in new energetic coaches to replace them. Not too many teams have been too interested in the Packers coaches and the ones that did get head coaching gigs elsewhere failed big time. Green Bay has been the team that eventually had to replace their coaches because they were stale or just plane bad. Teams like New England had to replace coaches because they moved on to other teams and promoted a highly competitive environment that pushed coaches and players to be better.

The coaches from NE who became HC's elsewhere have failed. Meanwhile, Andy Reid and Doug Peterson are doing fine. Also, with the apparent exception of Garoppolo, NE QB's have bombed elsewhere. As have esteemed GB backup QB's when given the chance to start. With the exception of AR. So, what have we learned? Transplanting success is unlikely.

Yes they have failed, but NE has a staff change that is somewhat consistent and no one gets complacent. They strive to be better.

....I believe he is referring to the MM coaching tree of MacAdoo and Philbin. Not the Holmgren tree of Reid, Pederson, Gruden, etc. Two very different eras in Green Bay as far as coaching goes.

Yes.  What happened with Holmgren in the 90's isn't that relevant to what's happened during MM's 13 years. 

Not all that many MM guys have seemed to be heavily pursued or to move up the coaching ladder.  There was a time when Moss got some interviews.  Perhaps the biggest "successes" would be McAdoo, who moved up to OC and then to coach.  And Philbin? 

But it's not like anybody who got a crack at MM's offensive coaching staff was on a direct ladder to get OC offers quickly.  Or that getting hired onto Caper's staff put you on a direct path to get DC offers.
