Report: Three Packers coaching moves, two on defense

A report says a new face is coming to Green Bay to coach on special teams, while two coaching moves are happening on the defensive side of the ball.

Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com says that the Packers are re-hiring Scott McCurley, a former inside linebackers coach under Dom Capers in Green Bay. He had been let go when the Packers fired Capers earlier this month, but may rejoin the Packers under a different role with defensive coordinator Mike Pettine.

McCurley has 12 years of experience with the Packers - four with the inside linebackers, five as defensive quality control coach.

Demovsky reports that Jason Simmons will shift from his role as assistant special teams coach to a defensive coaching role. He has seven years with Green Bay, including four helping with special teams.

According to Demovsky, the Packers are hiring Maurice Drayton as assistant special teams coach to replace Simmons. Drayton has served that role for two years with the Indianapolis Colts.
