Green Bay Packers defensive line coach Mike Trgovac looks like he’s going to have some job offers once the Packers season ends.
The Denver Broncos — who’ve hired Trgovac’s former boss, John Fox, as their head coach — appear ready to offer Trgovac their defensive coordinator job. It’s a role Trgovac is familiar with — he served as Fox’s defensive coordinator in Carolina from 2003 to 2008.
Tom Silverstein says the Philadelphia Eagles, who dismissed defensive coordinator Sean McDermott earlier this month, may also court Trgovac for their opening.
“I know my name has been thrown around there a bunch, but I really haven’t – you know Dom (Capers) doesn’t give us a lot of free time – to even think about it,” Trgovac said. “There will be some considerations I’ll have to take, one of them being I have a daughter who’s going to be a senior in high school. I’ve already moved her in high school. That’s a huge factor.”
The Packers will have to be eliminated from the playoffs before either team can talk to Trgovac. Then, Mike McCarthy will have to grant permission for an interview, which seems likely.
Trgovac has done wonders with the Packers defensive line, especially considering he’s had to deal with numerous injuries and the Johnny Jolly suspension.
Despite his family concerns, it seems unlikely Trgovac would turn down the chance to return to the role of defensive coordinator, especially with a high-profile organization like Denver or Philadelphia.
It would be a loss for the Packers, but Trgovac deserves the opportunity.
