While the NFL world waits to find out who in Green Bay will call the offensive plays in 2015, the Packers have made another coaching move. According to Alex Marvez of Fox Sports, the team has added Mike Solari to the staff.

Solari, 60, brings with him 28 years of NFL coaching experience with a multitude of franchises. His most recent stop came with the San Francisco 49ers where he helped cultivate one of the league's best ground attacks around Frank Gore. Solari is one of many 49ers coaches to depart this offseason after head coach Jim Harbaugh accepted the same position with the Michigan Wolverines.

Though it remains unclear what Solari's responsibilities will be with the Packers, ESPN's Rob Demovsky speculated that he might take over the assistant offensive line position. That would place Solari under current offensive line coach James Campen. If true, it would strengthen a Green Bay's offensive line that just delivered its finest season in over a decade.
