It would seem that the Green Bay Packers will have one more coaching vacancy to fill this off-season. In an off-season full of uncertainty, the team will have to find a new quality control coach going into the 2023 season.
Green Bay Packers Quality Control Coach Leaving Team
On Monday, ESPN college football insider Pete Thamel reported that Micheal Spurlock will be leaving the Green Bay Packers to take a job as the wide receivers coach at Western Kentucky University. Spurlock spent his one and only season with the Green Bay Packers in 2022. He served as the team’s special teams quality control coach this past season. Spurlock, coordinator Rich Bisaccia, and assistant special teams coach Byron Storer all were new hires last season. The three together helped the team turn around a special teams unit that had ranked as one of the worst in the NFL over the previous few years. The Packers posted a significant improvement under the new leadership last fall, ranking around the league average in most aggregate analyses.
A former NFL wide receiver himself, Spurlock had an eight-year career in the league. He spent time with eight different teams. His longest tenure came with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, who had him on their roster over four different seasons from 2007 to 2011. Most of his experience came on kickoff and punt returns over his career, recording five total return touchdowns. That professional career came after he played quarterback for Ole Miss, starting eight games during his senior season in 2005.
