Report: Philbin to return to Packers

GREEN BAY, Wis. (WBAY) - The Packers are starting to fill the positions left vacant by firings and re-organization this week.

The 2 big posts, General Manager and Defensive Coordinator, are still up for grabs. But it looks like the Offensive Coordinator job will go to former coordinator Joe Philbin.

ESPN.com and Cover 2 contributor Rob Demovsky reports the Packers are expected to hire Philbin back to a role similar -- if not the same -- as the Offensive Coordinator job he held from 2007-2011.

Philbin’s last year in Green Bay saw the Packers go 15-1, with Aaron Rodgers earning his first MVP award. Philbin's offenses ranked top-10 in the NFL every year as coordinator in Green Bay. Obviously those numbers were a joint effort with play-caller Mike McCarthy.
