ESPN report: Packers offensive coordinator, QB coach both out

GREEN BAY -- A tumultuous offseason for the Green Bay Packers continued Wednesday afternoon as news broke that both the Packers' offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach are no longer with the team, ESPN reported.

The worldwide leader's Adam Schefter tweeted the news early Wednesday evening:

Bennett just finished his third season as offensive coordinator but spent 23 years in Green Bay, according to Packers.com. Van Pelt joined the Packers in 2012.

The move to replace two key pieces of Green Bay's front office is just the latest in what has become a cavalcade of personnel changes. 

Over the course of just days, the team has fired defensive coordinator Dom Capers and reassigned longtime General Manager Ted Thompson.

Head Coach Mike McCarthy is sticking around for at least one more year, however, after signing a one-year contract extension.

McCarthy also announced Wednesday that the team also parted ways with assistant linebackers coach Scott McCurley and defensive line coach Mike Trgovac.

The Packers missed the playoffs this year for the first time since the 2008-09 season after finishing 7-9.
