While Pro Bowl and Senior Bowl practices roll along, so does the NFL's coaching carousel as teams look to solidify their staffs for the 2015 season.

On Thursday, the Packers lost their first assistant coach to another team, and we may see some additional changes in the coming weeks. One other area where we know there will be personnel changes is in the secondary, where a pair of key players hit free agency and have some big decisions to make.

Keep it here for more Packers news, and keep an eye out starting on Monday as we will begin our position-by-position look at the Packers' roster.
