Ex-Packers assistant Winston Moss to be named coach, GM of XFL’s LA team
The XFL is still in the process of hiring coaches and executives, and former Green Bay Packers assistant coach Winston Moss is the latest to join the league.
Arash Markazi of the Los Angeles Times reported on Tuesday that Winston, who was a linebackers coach for the Packers for 13 seasons before being fired in December, is set to be named the head coach and general manager of the XFL’s team in Los Angeles.
Moss has interviewed for several NFL head coaching jobs and was a finalist for the Detroit Lions job before they gave it to Matt Patricia. He’s an experienced coach who has ties to the LA area, as he played for the Los Angeles Raiders from 1991-1994.
Moss lost his job with the Packers after they decided to move on from Mike McCarthy. He was fired the same day he sent a tweet about Aaron Rodgers needing to be held more accountable.
The XFL is scheduled to begin play on Feb. 8, 2020.
