Packers president downplays Aaron Rodgers’ role in coaching moves

Aaron Rodgers

Monday’s overriding message from the Green Bay Packers is that Aaron Rodgers didn’t get Mike McCarthy fired and won’t get a new head coach hired.

Packers president Mark Murphy pushed back against chatter that Rodgers was a major catalyst in McCarthy’s firing Sunday. He also said that, while Rodgers was free to offer input, he would not be a decisive figure in the team’s upcoming coaching search.

It’s understandable why the Packers would want to have this out there, but given the tension between McCarthy and Rodgers, there’s no way the quarterback’s thinking won’t be taken into account during the hiring process. Maybe he won’t be involved, but Green Bay will make certain that Rodgers is comfortable with their hire.
