The Green Bay Packers announced the completion of the new assignments for the offensive coaching staff today. In the wake of Offensive Coordinator Joe Philbin becomming the head coach of the Miami Dolphins, Mike McCarthy began juggling his remaining staff. Quarterbacks coach Tom Clements was promoted to offensive coordinator and last week, Ben McAdoo moved from tight ends to the quarterback position. McCarthy finished the changes with running backs coach Jerry Fontenot moving to tight ends. Fontenot was the assistant offensive line coach for four seasons before moving to running backs last year. John Rushing will serve as an assistant offensive and special teams coach while Joel Hilgenberg will be the assistant offensive line coach. The only newcomer to the staff is Alex Van Pelt who will succeed Fontenot as running backs coach. Van Pelt, the former quarterback at the University of Pittsburgh, spent the past two seasons as the quarterbacks coach for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He spent the four previous seasons with the Buffalo Bills moving from quality control, to quarterbacks and in 2009, served as offensive coordinator. Van Pelt played nine years as a backup quarterback in Buffalo after setting school career records for passing yards and completions while at Pitt.
