Whether or not the Green Bay Packers decide to make adjustments to the coaching staff, it appears they might have to address some defections. According to Football Scoop, Mississippi State wants to fill its vacancy at offensive coordinator with Packers wide receiver coach Luke Getsy.

"Source tells FootballScoop Joe Moorhead has reserved the offensive coordinator title for Green Bay Packers receivers coach Luke Getsy. The Packers complete their season this weekend at Detroit. Getsy played quarterback for Moorhead at Akron back in the mid-2000s then served as a grad assistant with him thereafter at Akron as well."

Moorhead seeking a former protégé to serve as his offensive coordinator makes sense, especially considering the staff makeover taking place in Starkville. Mississippi State hired Moorhead earlier this month to replace Dan Mullen, who left to take over the University of Florida program. That transition left a lot of openings along the staff, which currently features only five named assistants. In addition to coordinating the offense, Getsy would also coach wide receivers under Moorhead.

Getsy joined the Packers as an offensive quality-control assistant in 2014, becoming the receivers coach in 2016. During his two years as a position coach, Getsy oversaw Davante Adams' development into one of the best young wideouts in the league.
