The Green Bay Packers are coming off a disappointing 2022 NFL season. After starting 4-8, the Packers rattled off 4 wins in a row to put themselves in a position to make the playoffs in week 18. Unfortunately, their 20-16 loss to the Detroit Lions dashed their playoff hopes. One week after the Packers’ season ended, the Atlanta Falcons scheduled an interview with Green Bay’s current defensive backs coach Jerry Gray.
Atlanta Falcons Schedule Interview With Jerry Gray
Per Benjamin Allbright, the Atlanta Falcons have requested to interview Green Bay Packers Pass Game Coordinator Jerry Gray, and plan to conduct an interview next week. Gray is a well respected long time DBs coach and former DC for the Bills and Titans. The interview is for the Falcons’ defensive coordinator position.
Gray was hired as the new defensive backs coach for the Seattle Seahawks where he coached the rookie safety tandem of Earl Thomas and Kam Chancellor. On January 17, 2011, Gray agreed to return to his alma mater Texas as the assistant head coach and defensive backs coach. On February 12, 2011, however, Gray rejoined the Titans as their defensive coordinator. On January 22, 2014, Gray was hired as the new defensive backs coach for the Minnesota Vikings. On January 29, 2020, Gray was hired as defensive backs coach for the Green Bay Packers. On March 1, 2021, Gray was promoted to defensive backs/passing game coordinator.
Gray has been well respected in the league for years, if Green Bay has no desire to promote Gray to defensive coordinator, he will likely be gone.
