Defensive assistant Scott McCurley isn't coming back to the Packers' staff, according to sources, but he's a coach who should be in demand because of his vast experience in different capacities under multiple defensive coordinators. He's another original member of former coach Mike McCarthy's staff dating to 2006.

New Packers coach Matt LaFleur made it clear on ESPN Wisconsin that he and offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett will both work closely Aaron Rodgers even if he hires a QB coach. "I want to be in that quarterback room as much as possible," LaFleur said. "I entrust that he and I have the same vision for the quarterback." On Hackett's role he said. "It's so important. He's so organized, and that's one thin I really valued in him. He's got experience as an NFL play caller, and he knows what it's like. We've got similar backgrounds -- coach's kid and has a lot of the same influences I have. I thought it was a great fit (even though) I've never worked with him."

Packers RB coach Ben Sirmans is expected to be retained on Matt LaFleur's staff, per sources. Not official yet, but it's in the works. He's done strong work with Aaron Jones, Jamaal Williams and the young running backs.

The Packers are interviewing 49ers assistant O-line coach Adam Stenavich for James Campen's old job as offensive line coach, according to a source. Stenavich is a Wisconsin native who actually played under Campen as a member of the Packers practice squad in 2006 and 2007. He would be a good fit to teach Matt LaFleur's offense considering he works under one of LaFleur's mentors, Kyle Shanahan.

Source: Packers hire Hackett as O-coordinator

Former Jaguars offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett has reached an agreement with head coach Matt Lafleur and the Packers to become their offensive coordinator, a source confirmed.

James Campen will become the Cleveland Browns associate head coach/offensive line coach, according to league sources. So the Packers are losing their longest-tenured assistant coach. New Packers coach Matt LaFleur will hire a new line coach.

James Campen is interviewing with the Cleveland Browns today, according to league sources. Hard to believe the Packers would risk losing their longest tenured assistant coach and one of the NFL's most respected offensive line coaches/run game coordinators. But they must be willing to take that chance since they would've had to grant the Browns permission to speak with Campen because he's under contract for next season. Only Dave "Hog" Hanner has matched Campen's 15 seasons as a Packers assistant. Campen joined the Packers coaching staff in 2004.

On the same day the Packers retained Mike Pettine as defensive coordinator, they dismissed defensive passing game coordinator Joe Whitt. So the entire defensive staff won't return intact. D-line coach Jerry Montgomery is expected to return. Unclear on the rest of the staff.

The Packers make it official with Mike Pettine remaining as defensive coordinator, as ESPN reported earlier in the week. New coach Matt LaFleur said of Pettine earlier today on SiriusXM radio: "I think we share a common vision, and I am really excited to see this defense take off in year two of his system. I think that continuity just for the players to be able to perform, usually in year two, it definitely is going to improve, and also the thing that was so attractive about Mike to me was, here's a guy that's been a head coach in the National Football League, and it's going to be somebody that I can lean on because there's going to be certain circumstances that come up that, hey, maybe I haven't been through, so really excited to have Mike a part of our staff."

Packers WR coach David Raih also will be free to pursue other jobs. A source said he will not be retained by new coach Matt LaFleur. Look for him to get a shot in Arizona. He worked with new Cardinals coach Kliff Kingsbury at Texas Tech in 2013. There's interest from Kingsbury again, a source said.

New coach Matt LaFleur will not retain special teams coordinator Ron Zook, a league source told ESPN. Not a surprise given how much the Packers struggled on special teams last season. They had made strides in 2017, finishing 16th in the Rick Gosselin's annual special teams rankings. Those rankings aren't out yet for the 2018 season, but the Packers are sure to plummet. Zook, like most of former coach Mike McCarthy's staff, was under contract through 2019 so if he doesn't get another job, the Packers will have to pay his full salary.
