According to the Green Bay Packers website, the team has fired their Special Teams Coordinator after coming up short in the Playoffs. The Green Bay Packers have released special teams coordinator Shawn Slocum, Head Coach Mike McCarthy announced Friday.
“I would like to thank Shawn for all of his contributions over the past nine years,” McCarthy said. “He was a positive contributor to our success, including helping us win Super Bowl XLV. We wish Shawn, Michelle and their family the best moving forward.”
To be honest, the team need to fire Mike McCarthy for sitting on 20 points thinking it was enough to hold off the Seahawks. No game should ever have to rely on their Special Teams Coordinator when they are up by 20 points…..
