Ex-Dolphins ST coordinator Darren Rizzi is not expected to join the Packers.

Rizzi met with new coach Matt LaFleur in Green Bay last week in "what was described as a great visit," so it is a bit of a surprise he will not be joining the staff. Rizzi was interviewed for the Dolphins' head coaching vacancy earlier this month, highlighting his standing in the league. He should find a new home in the near future.

Former Buccaneers OC Todd Monken will interview for the Lions' opening at offensive coordinator.

He's also interviewing for the OC vacancies in both Cleveland and Green Bay. Monken impressed as a play-caller in his short stint as the Bucs OC, though he hasn't had much luck on the interview circuit, failing to land a head-coaching job despite sit-downs with the Bengals, Jets and Packers. He'd be a smart hire for the Lions, who are looking to replace fired OC Jim Bob Cooter. Steve Sarkisian had also been vying for Detroit's offensive coordinator role, though it looks like he's heading to Arizona to work under Kliff Kingsbury.

Former Jaguars OC Nathaniel Hackett will interview with the Packers on Friday.

He's interviewing for a "top offensive job," according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Matt LaFleur will likely coordinate his own offense, though Hackett could be a helpful sounding board for the first-time head coach. The 39-year-old also interviewed for the Lions' offensive coordinator opening earlier this week.
Jan 11 - 1:23 PM's Tom Pelissero reports the Cardinals and Packers are both interested in interviewing 49ers run game coordinator Mike McDaniel for their offensive coordinator vacancies.

A 35-year-old Yale alum, McDaniel has been alongside Kyle Shanahan since 2011 in Washington. Per Pelissero, Shanahan "so far" seems unlikely to let McDaniel interview.
Jan 10 - 5:01 PM

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Packers are "zeroing in on" Titans OC Matt LaFleur for their head-coaching job.

Per Schefter, Green Bay has "begun notifying" other candidates that they're out, and it's expected the job goes to LaFleur. It sounds like this thing could be official anytime now. LaFleur spent 2017 as the Rams' offensive coordinator under coach Sean McVay and then left to be the play-caller and OC for the Titans this past year, leading the offense under defensive-minded coach Mike Vrabel. LaFleur's offense didn't jump off the page in Tennessee, but the Packers appear to be betting on the scheme that has been so successful with McVay and Kyle Shanahan, who LaFleur also coached with as the QBs coach in Atlanta from 2015-2016.
Jan 7 - 6:03 PM

Bucs OC Todd Monken will interview for the Packers' head coaching job.

The interview will take place Saturday. Monken has been one of the most sought after coordinators this offseason after leading the Bucs to the top passing attack in the league. He's also scheduled to meet with the Bengals and Jets next week.
Jan 5 - 3:09 PM

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports the Packers will interview Adam Gase for their head-coaching vacancy.

The interview is expected to happen Sunday. The Packers join a growing list of teams interested in Gase, who already met with the Cardinals and Jets. Gase would be another offensive-minded hire after Mike McCarthy's 13-year tenure. Green Bay also has interviews lined up with Titans OC Matt LaFleur, Saints OC Pete Carmichael and AHC Dan Campbell, Steelers OL coach Mike Munchak, and Patriots coordinators Josh McDaniels and Brian Flores.
Jan 4 - 5:19 PM

Northwestern coach Pat Fitzgerald insists he will not be a candidate for any NFL jobs this offseason.

Fitzgerald has long resisted any overtures to leave his alma mater, so there is little reason not to take him at his word. The Green Bay Press-Gazette had reported the Packers were "hopeful" of interviewing the B1G coach. On to the next one.
Jan 3 - 6:44 PM

NFL Network's Mike Garafolo reports Josh McDaniels turned down an interview with the Bengals.

McDaniels will interview with the Packers on Friday. He has also been linked with the Browns, but Mary Kay Cabot of reports they have yet to request an interview. It might be Green Bay or bust for McDaniels.
Jan 3 - 9:28 AM

CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora reports the Packers requested to interview Saints OC Pete Carmichael for their head-coaching vacancy.

It's amazing it's taken this long for Carmichael to get a look, especially with teams wanting offensive-minded head coaches. Carmichael, 47, has been in New Orleans with coach Sean Payton for the last 13 years, graduating from QBs coach to OC back in 2009. Carmichael has worked under both Payton and longtime Chargers coach Marty Schottenheimer. He doesn't call the plays in New Orleans, but Carmichael has long been learning the lay of the land under Payton.
Jan 2 - 3:03 PM

Saints assistant/TEs coach Dan Campbell will interview for the Packers head coaching job on Saturday.

The Saints are on bye this week, allowing Campbell the chance to interview with interested teams. The Browns and Cardinals are also said to have interest in the 42-year-old, who spent 11 years in the league as a tight end for the Cowboys, Giants, Lions and Saints. In addition to Campbell, the Packers have also been linked to Jim Caldwell, Brian Flores, Matt LaFleur, Josh McDaniels, Mike Munchak and Chuck Pagano.
Jan 1 - 12:39 PM

Patriots OC Josh McDaniels will interview for the Packers head coaching job on Friday.

Interviewing for head coaching jobs during the Patriots' playoff bye has become part of McDaniels' yearly routine. There was some question of whether McDaniels would draw interest this year after abandoning the Colts last offseason, though he's already been linked to a number of teams including Green Bay, Cleveland and Cincinnati. Former Lions and Colts coach Jim Caldwell, Saints assistant/TEs coach Dan Campbell, Patriots DC Brian Flores, Titans OC Matt LaFleur, Steelers OL coach Mike Munchak and former Colts coach Chuck Pagano have also been mentioned as potential heirs to Mike McCarthy's throne in Green Bay.
Jan 1 - 9:38 AM

Speaking after Monday night's Holiday Bowl victory over Utah, Northwestern coach Pat Fitzgerald said, "I'm not going anywhere."

Many reports had him linked to Green Bay's head coaching vacancy, but Fitzgerald emphatically shot down those rumors on Monday night. "Hashtag Go Cats, man. This is home," said the 44-year-old, who also played his college ball in Evanston. "I’m not going anywhere. This is home forever." The Packers have cast a wide net in their coaching search, showing interest in former Lions and Colts head coach Jim Caldwell, Saints assistant/TEs coach Dan Campbell, Titans OC Matt LaFleur, Patriots DC Brian Flores, Patriots OC Josh McDaniels, Steelers OL coach Mike Munchak and former Colts coach Chuck Pagano, among others.
Jan 1 - 8:22 AM

The Packers have requested an interview with Titans OC Matt LaFleur.

LaFleur was more disappointment than revelation in Nashville this year -- to be frank -- but he has the requisite pedigree as a disciple of Sean McVay and Kyle Shanahan. The Packers are trying to replace Mike McCarthy as head coach.
Mon, Dec 31, 2018 06:02:00 PM

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Packers have requested permission to interview Steelers OL coach Mike Munchak for their head-coaching vacancy.

Schefter reported earlier Monday that Munchak is a candidate in Denver. A Hall-of-Fame player, Munchak has been a perennial coaching candidate since his three-year stint with the Titans. It would be very surprising to see him replace Mike McCarthy in Green Bay.
Mon, Dec 31, 2018 01:20:00 PM

The Boston Globe's Jim McBride reports the Packers have requested an interview with Patriots de facto DC Brian Flores.

The Browns, Dolphins, and Broncos also want to speak with Flores. In his first season calling the plays, the Patriots' defense finished 21st in total defense but seventh in points allowed.
Mon, Dec 31, 2018 09:01:00 AM

The Boston Globe's Jim McBride reports the Packers have requested an interview with Patriots OC Josh McDaniels.

Green Bay also wants to interview Patriots de facto DC Brian Flores. Apparently not suffering any ill effects to his reputation after leaving the Colts at the altar last year, McDaniels again looks set to be one of the hottest coaching candidates in what many believe is a down year. It would be surprising if he does not end up with a head coaching job, but the same could have and was said last year.
Mon, Dec 31, 2018 08:55:00 AM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Josh McDaniels is a possible candidate for the Packers' head coach job.

The Packers are casting a wide net in their search to replace Mike McCarthy. They've already met with Jim Caldwell and Chuck Pagano, and have been linked to Northwestern coach Pat Fitzgerald. McDaniels was nearly packaged with Green Bay GM Brian Gutekunst when he interviewed for the 49ers' job in 2017, so there's some familiarity between the sides. The Browns are also expected to have McDaniels interest.

The Athletic's Michael Lombardi reports Jim Caldwell will interview for two more open head coaching jobs besides Green Bay.

Lombardi did not specify which job openings, but he does say Caldwell is already putting together a staff. That does not mean he will get a job -- which coach you will bring with you is a part of every interview -- but it does mean Caldwell is making a serious push at another head coaching job. Caldwell has not proven to be anything special as a coach, but NFL teams love taking the "safe" route. That combined with a perceived weak coaching crop could earn Caldwell another job.
Thu, Dec 27, 2018 09:41:00 AM

The Packers interviewed Chuck Pagano for their head coaching job.

He joins Jim Caldwell as early candidates the Packers have met. Pagano spent 2018 out of the league after getting fired from the Colts. He has ties to both interim HC Joe Philbin and DC Mike Pettine, so it makes sense the Packers brought him in. We'd be surprised if Green Bay's Pagano interest was more than a courtesy interview.
