If he lands the job, Moss’ departure will leave another significant hole on the Packers’ coaching staff. This week, the Packers canned defensive coordinator Dom Capers as well as two other defensive assistants.

Moss has been a staple of the Packers’ coaching staff since he was brought aboard in 2006. Prior to that, he spent time with the Saints and Seahawks. He was considered for the Raiders’ head coaching position in 2012, but the team ultimately went with Dennis Allen.

In addition to Austin and Moss, the Lions also intend to interview Panthers defensive coordinator Steve Wilks, Vikings offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur, and Patriots defensive coordinator Matt Patricia.

    Rooney Rule only applies to head coaching and senior front office positions. I think they want him for the coaching staff not as head coach.

    Alonzo Highsmith, Winston Moss, did the Packers watch Billy Corbin’s “The U” and were like, “THAT’S what WE need!”
