Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy promoted Joe Philbin to offensive coordinator, replacing Jeff Jagodzinski, who took the Boston College head coaching job in late December.

Entering his fifth season with the Packers, Philbin served previously as assistant offensive line coach in 2003 and tight ends/assistant offensive line coach in 2004 and 2005.  Prior to this past season, McCarthy appointed him in charge of the entire offensive line, an important role considering the team was implementing a zone blocking scheme and would draft three rookies to start across the line.

Philbin is a coaching veteran of 23 years.  He becomes the 7th individual to hold the title of Packers Offensive Coordinator.
