Veteran offensive assistant Tom Clements leaving Packers
GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) Tom Clements is leaving the Green Bay Packers following 11 seasons as one of coach Mike McCarthy's top offensive assistants.
McCarthy said that Clements' contract had expired, and that he was moving on to other interests. He thanked Clements for what he called an ''incredible 11 years'' with Green Bay.
Clements spent the past two seasons as the associate head coach/offense. McCarthy handed Clements play-calling duties before the 2015 season, then took play-calling back at midseason with offensive production down following the knee injury that season to receiver Jordy Nelson.
Clements also spent three seasons as offensive coordinator and six as the quarterbacks coach, having played an instrumental role in the development of Aaron Rodgers.
