Bob Sanders Finds a Job

Looks like there is life after the great Defensive Purge of Green Bay after all. Several of the Packers former defensive coaches are landing on their feet with other teams, which is fine as long as that collective group of people never work together again.

The leader of that group, former defensive coordinator Bob Sanders, is taking a job as the defensive line coach of the Buffalo Bills. Former defensive backs coach Lionel Washington has accepted a job with the Oakland Raiders, while former strength and conditioning coach Rock Gullickson recently interviewed with the St. Louis Rams. Congrats to those guys for moving on, but with the current staff the Pack is assembling, I'm not missing them too much.

In other coaching news, former Packers quarterback Doug Pederson has been hired by Andy Reid to be the team's new quarterbacks coach. Dougie will have the task of coaching Donovan McNabb (maybe) and furthering the development of Kevin Kolb. Might he also be reunited with his golfing buddy Brett Favre?
