    Packers announce assistant OL coach Joel Hilgenberg has resigned.

    Don't like that at all, as I think the line improved since he artived in Green Bay.

    I think he could have worked his way up to being our main OL coach in a couple years.

    You’re kidding, right? If not, please let us know the contributions Hilgenberg made.

    I completely understand why someone who is financially secure, like Greene and (I assume) Hilgenberg, stops being an assistant coach. The hours are incredibly long and unless they see a relatively quick ascension up the ladder to be a coordinator and HC, that’s a huge time commitment for someone who doesn’t have to work at all.

    You don't do that line of work for the money. You have to absolutely love the game and the whole 'team' thing. Nobody here, I assume, has any idea about Higenberg and how helpful/effective he is. I hope Campen is improving as a coach, the line play has gotten better. Who knows, though, if that was Hilgenberg's affect or Campen's. Gotta trust MM is much more in tune with what is best for the team.

    The timing is curious and not helpful at this late date.

    My guess was that a lot of his job was just motivating players. Probably not too hard to replace.

    It's bothersome that 2 respected former players and good coaches have abruptly resigned "to spend more time with family". If the reason is true, no problem. But if the real reason is due to bickering among the coaching staff its a problem, a big problem.

    Timing of Greene you can understand. This one is puzzling. Couple of weeks before the draft and training camp around the corner.

    I guess, more to follow.

    Actually, while I do think Hilg made a difference, this is probably a vote of confidence in Tretter if face value means nothing. We promoted Hilg, a former C, to OL Asst right after Wells left.

    Pretty much, its not like players all of a sudden forget everything they've been taught (barring John Sullivan)
