Packers Hire Perry As New DB Coach
Our sources have confirmed what we initially reported last week (1/19/09 – Packers Likely To Add Ex-Steelers DB Coach Perry) that Darren Perry has been hired as the Defensive Back Coach of the Green Bay Packers. We aren’t sure why there is such a slow rollout on the new staff, but Perry was in town prior to Dom Campers being hired.
What we heard is that the Packers didn’t want to wait on hiring a Defensive Coordinator before locking Perry up. Other NFL clubs were very interested in adding him to their staffs (i.e. Cowboys, Lions) so the Packers moved swiftly. Look for the official press release in the coming days and for Perry to get to work immediately after the Super Bowl.
