Packers Many Firings Also Include OC Edgar Bennett and QB Coach Alex Van Pelt

Packers’ coaching changes weren’t just limited to the defensive side of the ball, Chris Mortensen and Rob Demovsky of ESPN report.

After already deciding to fire defensive coordinator Dom Capers, inside linebackers coach Scott McCurley and defensive line coach Mike Trgovac, the Packers also have chosen to move on from offensive coordinator Edgar Bennett and quarterbacks coach Alex Van Pelt.

Van Pelt’s contract expired after this season. Bennett was stripped of his offensive coordinator title, and there was a chance he could have gone back to coaching a position, but that’s not expected.

The Packers also are looking for a receivers coach after Luke Getsy left to become offensive coordinator at Mississippi State.

Bennett, a former Packers running back, has been on the team’s coaching staff since 2005. He coached running backs until 2010 and receivers from 2010-14, when he became offensive coordinator after Joe Philbin left to coach the Miami Dolphins.
