Green Bay Packers reportedly interview Chuck Pagano, Jim Caldwell

The Green Bay Packers appear to be neck deep in their head coaching search.

Green Bay fired Mike McCarthy earlier this month after 12-plus seasons with the franchise. His most recent head coaching duties came with the Detroit Lions from 2014-17, leading the team to the playoffs twice.

The Lions signed Stafford to a five-year, $135 million contract extension with $92 million guaranteed prior to the 2017 season, with the first year of the extension coming in 2018.

Former Indianapolis Colts punter Pat McAfee will call this Sunday's Detroit Lions-Green Bay Packers game, the first National Football League game in his broadcasting career. The Packers probably also like the fact that Caldwell has had extensive experience coaching superstar quarterbacks.

Apparently, the Packers are highly interested in former Colts coaches, because they also interviewed Chuck Pagano, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

Pagano last coached in the league for the Colts from 2012-2017, taking over for Caldwell after he was sacked. "I'm pulling for the Lions just as much as I'm pulling for Aaron Rodgers, who's a really good friend of mine".

It's worth noting that Schwartz and Mornhinweg could have probably landed a second head coaching job, but made a decision to remain as successful coordinators. The only real exception is Dick Jauron, who was only an interim head coach in Detroit, who was hired by the Buffalo Bills as head coach after leaving.
