GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) The Green Bay Packers promoted Luke Getsy to receivers coach Wednesday and hired Brian Angelichio as tight ends coach, Ben Sirmans as running backs coach, David Raih as assistant offensive line coach and Ejiro Evero as defensive quality control coach.
Tom Clements remains on coach Mike McCarthy's staff with the same title but different duties. Last offseason, McCarthy handed the play-calling duties to Clements and promoted him to associate head coach/offense. However, in December, McCarthy took back the play-calling chores. After the playoff loss at Arizona, McCarthy said he would ''be calling the plays from here on in.''
Getsy joined the Packers in 2014, serving as offensive quality control coach the past two seasons. Getsy, who coached wide receivers at Western Michigan in 2013, worked closely alongside Alex Van Pelt in the quarterbacks/receivers room last year. Van Pelt, a former NFL quarterback, will be entering his third season in charge of Aaron Rodgers and the rest of the quarterbacks.
Sirmans replaces Sam Gash, who was fired after the season. Sirmans spent the past four seasons as the Rams' running backs coach.
Angelichio replaces Jerry Fontenot, who was fired after the season. Angelichio spent the past two seasons as the Browns' tight ends coach.
Raih replaces Mike Solari, who was hired as the Giants' offensive line coach this week. Raih, a former quarterback at Iowa, has been with the Packers since 2014 as a coaching administrator.
Evero spent the past five seasons with the 49ers, the last two as a defensive assistant.
