Packers complete coaching staff


GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- The Green Bay Packers promoted Luke Getsy to receivers coach Wednesday and hired Brian Angelichio as tight ends coach, Ben Sirmans as running backs coach, David Raih as assistant offensive line coach and Ejiro Evero as defensive quality control coach.

Tom Clements remains on coach Mike McCarthy's staff with the same title but different duties. Last offseason, McCarthy handed the play-calling duties to Clements and promoted him to associate head coach/offense. However, in December, McCarthy took back the play-calling chores. After the playoff loss at Arizona, McCarthy said he would "be calling the plays from here on in."

Getsy joined the Packers in 2014, serving as offensive quality control coach the past two seasons. Getsy, who coached wide receivers at Western Michigan in 2013, worked closely alongside Alex Van Pelt in the quarterbacks/receivers room last year. Van Pelt, a former NFL quarterback, will be entering his third season in charge of Aaron Rodgers and the rest of the quarterbacks.

Via a press release from the Packers, here is the team's complete list of coaches for the 2016 season.
