Ron Zook will not be back as Packers Special Teams Coordinator, according to ESPN’s Rob Demovsky.

“They used to always say there’s two kinds of coaches, those that have been fired or those that are going to get fired,” Zook said in the week leading up to the Packers final regular season game.

Zook led Green Bay’s special teams unit for the past 4 seasons.

The Packers were the second-most penalized special teams unit in the NFL last season under Zook. His unity also committed 10 turnovers, while forcing just one.

ESPN is also reporting that wide receivers coach David Raih will not return next season.

New Packers Head Coach Matt LaFleur did not say if Defensive Coordinator Mike Pettine would stay on, despite multiple reports saying his job was safe.
