There’s still no official announcement from the team, but Packers linebacker Sam Barrington broke the news via Twitter today.
Congratulations to our new Special Teams coordinator Ron Zook.
Packers head coach Mike McCarthy fired Special Teams Coordinator Shawn Slocum last Friday. The Packers lost to the Seattle Seahawks in the NFC Championship game and two costly special teams mistakes were the difference.
Zook came on board last season to serve as a special teams assistant under Slocum. He was previously the special teams coach for the Pittsburgh Steelers from 1996-98.
