Packers fire Moss after tweet on coach search

Packers fire Moss after tweet on coach search

Green Bay Packers outside linebackers coach Winston Moss was sacked on Tuesday, the same day he sent a tweet about leadership for the team.

"We've got to be professional, accountable, respectful and punctual - those are the four things that we've got to do the next four weeks", he said.

Earlier Tuesday, a Twitter account associated with Moss expressed criticism of McCarthy's firing and suggested that Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers' play must be held accountable. Moss, an 11-year National Football League veteran linebacker, has been an National Football League assistant for 20 years in all and the associate head coach in Green Bay the past four years.

In the currency market, the dollar index, which tracks the greenback against a basket of peers, softened 0.2 per cent to 96.808. Analysts expect an inversion of the two-year, 10-year yield curve - seen as a predictor of a U.S. recession - to follow suit.

That's just speculation, but the latter theory would make sense: McCarthy hired Moss in 2006 after coming to the Packers and quickly promoted him to assistant head coach as his "right hand man". Relative to your question, I think you do have to constantly pay attention to how we are teaching. An NFL linebacker for 11 seasons, Moss primarily oversaw the outside linebackers.

Moss shared another interesting tweet on Wednesday morning.

"We thank Winston for his contributions to the Packers over the past 13 years", said Philbin. "I don't know (how) many times I've got to stand here and tell you, I don't feel like I need to convince anybody about Mike and I's relationship". The Packers turned to Philbin, the offensive coordinator and former Dolphins head coach, to take over for McCarthy for the last four games of the season. Moss was obviously passed over for the interim job in favor of Philbin.
