Green Bay Cleans House On Defense

Yesterday, the story was that Bob Sanders might be fired.  Today, the story is so much more.

Defensive coaches that were fired, according to the National Football Post: defensive ends coach Carl Hairston, defensive tackles coach Robert Nunn, secondary coach Kurt Schottenheimer, cornerbacks coach Lionel Washington and strength & conditioning coordinator Rock Gullickson.

In case you were wondering if anyone actually was retained, the answer is yes.  Assistant head coach/linebackers Winston Moss, one of the highest regarded assistants (not just in Green Bay, but in the NFL) was kept on staff.  Why?  Probably because he's been quietly gathering attention as a head coaching candidate, even interviewing for the St. Louis job.

So what now?  Well, Green Bay needs to hire some new assistants to go with a shiny new defensive coordinator.  Any suggestions?

UPDATE: I had previously reported that defensive quality control coach Joe Whitt Jr. had been fired.  I was mistaken; strength & conditioning coordinator Rock Gullickson was fired, not Joe Whitt Jr.
