The Packers are making another change to their coaching staff. It’s been reported that special teams coordinator, Maurice Drayton, will not return to the team in 2022. This was a move many saw coming, but it has now become official.

Who Takes Over on the Packers Staff?
Matt LaFleur doesn’t really have tendencies when it comes to changes on his staff. Joe Barry was an outside hire. However, when the Packers lost Nathaniel Hackett, he promoted Adam Stenavich. As of right now it is unclear who would take over the role. Expect there to be a hiring in the next week or two.
In 2021 the Packers special teams unit was historicaly bad. Whoever takes over the position is going to have a lot of work to do. Two potential names to look at are former Giants head coach Joe Judge and former Raiders head coach Rich Bisaccia. Prior to being head coaches both were respected special teams coordinators. Joe Judge spent years in New England with Bill Belichick.
Rich Bisaccia was the interim head coach for the Raiders this season and helped them reach the playoffs. He has been described as a great leader and has a solid backround with special teams.
