In a surprise move, inside linebackers coach Scott McCurley returns to the Packers, perhaps in a new role. The Green Bay Packers continue to tinker with their coaching staff in the wake of a disappointing 2017 season. According to ESPN’s Rob Demovsky, the team will bring back Scott McCurley after letting him go in the wake of the season finale, add former Indianapolis Colts assistant Maurice Drayton to coach special teams under Ron Zook, and reassigned Jason Simmons to a defensive role.
McCurley coached inside linebackers in 2017 under defensive coordinator Dom Capers, helping second-year man Blake Martinez develop into an impact player. Still, the Packers decided to part with him anyway along with Capers and D-line coach Mike Trgovac. Though McCurley will return, he might have a different role under new defensive coordinator Mike Pettine.
