Packers hire assistants Lewis, Slocum

GREEN BAY, Wis. (Feb. 6, 2006) -- New Green Bay Packers coach Mike McCarthy drew from two familiar football families to round out his assistant coaching staff.

Eric Lewis, son of former Packers offensive coordinator Sherman Lewis, will join the team as a defensive assistant, the team said. The Packers also hired Shawn Slocum, son of former Texas A&M coach R.C. Slocum, as a special teams assistant.

"Eric and Shawn are both energetic, up-and-coming coaches who come to the Packers bringing lifelong football family backgrounds," McCarthy said. "They're ready to take the next step with us here in Green Bay, and have a bright future in the National Football League."

The 30-year-old Lewis has been the secondary coach at Ball State since 2003. His father was the Packers' offensive coordinator from 1992-99.

The 40-year-old Slocum played linebacker and coached at Texas A&M. Last year, he was the assistant head coach and linebackers coach at Mississippi.
