GREEN BAY, Wis. (Jan. 15, 2006) -- The Green Bay Packers hired former tight ends coach Jeff Jagodzinski as their offensive coordinator.
Jagodzinski was Green Bay's tight ends coach from 1999-03, before being fired by former coach Mike Sherman after the Packers lost to Philadelphia in an NFC divisional playoff game.
He and new Green Bay coach Mike McCarthy worked together in 1999, when McCarthy was the Packers' quarterbacks coach.
Jagodzinski spent the last two season with the Atlanta Falcons, where he coached the tight ends and then the offensive line. The Falcons led the NFL in rushing the past two seasons.
The 42-year-old Jagodzinski has 21 seasons of coaching experience at the pro and college levels. He also has served as offensive coordinator at Boston College and coached at East Carolina, LSU, Northern Illinois and Wisconsin-Whitewater.
