Suddenly, Kevin Greene Is a Packer

Bleacher Report Senior Analyst IJanuary 26, 2009

The man who may have inspired the haircut of A.J. Hawk will now stand alongside him, every single day. Former Steelers, Rams, and Panthers linebacker Kevin Greene will be introduced as a linebackers coach for the Green Bay Packers.

Greene has led the NFL in sacks twice during his tenure, and was one of the more recognizable players in the game during the mid-1990s.

He hasn't really been heard from since he retired from the NFL, but his familiarity with the 3-4 scheme and his participation in a few coaching internships were enough for McCarthy and Capers to invite Greene to their staff.

Now if you're asking yourself, "Wait a minute, don't the Packers already have a linebacker coach?" you're right. His name is Winston Moss, and you've no doubt heard a lot about him this offseason.

The guy who was once a candidate for both the Rams and Raiders head coaching positions will now be nothing more than the "assistant" head coach of the Packers, as well as their inside linebackers coach. Kevin Greene will handle the duties of the outside linebackers position.

I have to say, I'm liking the way this defensive staff is unfolding.
