GREEN BAY, Wis. (WSAU) -- The Green Bay Packers are losing another one of their assistant coaches. Outside linebackers coach Kevin Greene announced Friday he is stepping away from coaching for now to spend more time with his wife Tara, and their children Gavin and Gabrielle.
Greene issued a statement saying he will miss coaching and, (quote) “will try to return after our kids move on to college if a team will have me.” As popular and effective as he was over the past five years in Green Bay, that’s probably not going to be an issue. Under his watch, the Packers had 204 sacks in five years, which is 4th overall in the NFL.
Greene said, “My experience here with the Green Bay Packers has been nothing but positive. I am eternally grateful for the opportunity that Mike McCarthy and Ted Thompson have blessed me with. I have a peace about the productivity that I helped bring forward in all of the fine young men that have been entrusted to me these past five years. I am most proud of all their accomplishments and the fine young men they've become in this league.”
