Packers hire former IUP assistant
GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — Green Bay Packers coach Mike McCarthy made a series of moves Friday to fill out his coaching staff, among them hiring former IUP assistant coach Luke Getsy, who will be an offensive quality control coach.
Getsy joins the staff after working with wide receivers at Western Michigan last season. The year before that, in 2012, he served as IUP’s offensive coordinator in coach Curt Cignetti’s second season at IUP.
The Packers also hired Sam Gash to coach running backs, a job that became vacant when Alex Van Pelt was moved to quarterbacks coach. He replaced Homer City native Ben McAdoo, who left Green Bay to become the offensive coordinator of the New York Giants.
Winston Moss will oversee all linebackers after working with the inside linebackers; Scott McCurley will be an assistant linebackers coach; Jason Simmons will be a defensive and special teams assistant; John Rushing will be a defensive quality control coach; Luke Getsy will be an offensive quality control coach; and Chris Gizzi will be a strength and conditioning assistant.
