Bears Eyeing Packers’ Luke Getsy For OC

The Packers might lose another key offensive coach this offseason. After Nathaniel Hackett bolted for Denver, quarterbacks coach Luke Getsy is receiving outside offensive coordinator interest.

The Bears are targeting Getsy for their OC job under Matt Eberflus, Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel tweets, noting that an offer is out to Getsy for the job. Getsy is indeed the clubhouse leader for Chicago’s OC gig, Ian Rapoport of tweets. The Bears would still need to meet with a minority candidate to satisfy the Rooney Rule before moving forward here.

Getsy, 37, also interviewed for the Broncos’ HC job. He has not yet been linked to following Hackett to Denver. Instead, Hackett has targeted Packers offensive line coach Adam Stenavich for that job. Stenavich may have another option, should Getsy leave. The Packers will likely have to choose between promoting Getsy or Stenavich, Silverstein tweets, in the wake of Hackett’s departure. The other seemingly would be an offensive coordinator elsewhere. Stenavich would be a non-play-calling OC in Green Bay or Denver, with Hackett expected to call plays for the Broncos.

Chicago also expressed interest in Eagles passing-game coordinator Kevin Patullo for its OC role. Patullo and Eberflus worked together in Indianapolis. Getsy and Eberflus do not have a similar connection, with Getsy’s entire NFL body of work coming in Green Bay. Getsy worked his way up from the quality control level and has been with the Packers for most of the past eight seasons, the past three as QBs coach.
