GREEN BAY (WKOW) — The Packers have fired associate head coach/linebackers coach Winston Moss. Interim head coach Joe Philbin announcing the move late Tuesday night.
“We thank Winston for his contributions to the Packers over the past 13 years,” said Philbin. “We hope for the best for Winston and his family moving forward.”
Winston spent 13 seasons with the Packers as an assistant. He voiced frustration on Twitter earlier in the day on Tuesday.
Ponder this… what Championship teams have are great leadership! Period! It’s not the offensive guru trend, it’s not the safe trend. Find somebody that is going to hold #12 and everybody in this building to a #LombardiStandard! Period! #losingsucks!
