Packers Fire Associate Head Coach Winston Moss After Tweet Criticizing Team Leadership

Josh McDaniels coaching rumors 2018: Patriots OC not worried about about NFL head coach openings

Packers fire associate head coach Winston Moss

When Packers president Mark Murphy met with reporters Monday to outline an offseason that will be remembered for its seismic influence on the organization, his opening statement emphasized the importance of the present: a four-week audition for interim head coach Joe Philbin, the man elevated to replace the fired Mike McCarthy.

"It's never about one thing", Philbin said Wednesday. "I just didn't feel like the fit, right now, was where it needs to be".

The critical tweet that Moss posted Tuesday, when he questioned the Packers' leadership, was only part of the reason he was sacked by Philbin.

The Packers officially fired Moss Tuesday night. It wasn't about - again, you're talking to a guy who's never tweeted in his life, doesn't even know what Twitter is - so again, it's not about a tweet or anything like that.

The Supreme Court overturned Sirisena's decision to dissolve Parliament and halted the preparations for snap polls. Wickremesinghe says his dismissal is invalid because he still holds a majority in the 225-member Parliament.

"I don't really worry about the future and honestly, each week is a tremendous challenge and we try to stay in the moment and focus on the task at hand, which this week is obviously considerable considering that we haven't had a lot of success down there", said McDaniels, who is focused on New England's upcoming road tilt against the Dolphins. "I think it's important, as I said to the team, we gotta be professional, accountable, respectful and punctual".

On Tuesday night, Philbin decided to make his first big move, firing associate head coach/ outside linebackers coach Winston Moss.

McDaniels last served as an National Football League head coach when he left his first stint as Patriots offensive coordinator to coach the Denver Broncos from 2009-2010. But media scrutiny became more intense in recent weeks of the relationship behind the scenes, and Moss, of course, had a front-row seat to the player-coach interaction for the duration of McCarthy's tenure. He was a linebackers coach in Green Bay for 13 seasons and McCarthy's assistant head coach for the last 12.

Asked what he's looking for over the final four games, Philbin said he wants his team to "play the game the right way".
