The Lions have secured permission to interview Packers assistant head coach/linebackers coach Winston Moss, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL.com (on Twitter). Moss’ interview will come after Teryl Austin‘s meeting with the team on Tuesday.
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.
