Even though he was fired as the team’s offensive coordinator, we figured Edgar Bennett would return to the Green Bay Packers as the team’s receivers coach. He held that role with the Packers from 2011-14.
The Packers tried to get him back in that role, but Bennett, scorned, wanted to pursue other opportunities. And so he has. He is now the Oakland Raiders’ receivers coach under Jon Gruden.
Hell. Coulda had that job in Green Bay, where he was a somewhat legend. But obviously pissed off over being fired.
So good for Edgar Bennett for getting another job.
The Green Bay Packers’ former quarterbacks coach, Alex Van Pelt, also has found a new job. He has been named the Cincinnati Bengals’ quarterbacks coach.
So everyone wins, right?
