The Green Bay Packers’ 2018 season has come to an end and they finish the year with a 6-9-1 record. They have suffered back-to-back losing seasons for the first time since 1990-91 and it’s also the first time since 2005-06 the team has missed the playoffs in consecutive seasons.
Earlier this month, the Packers fired Mike McCarthy as the head coach after a 20-17 loss to the Arizona Cardinals. Joe Philbin was named the interim head coach and he led the Packers to a 2-2 record in December. The players said they wanted to win for Philbin, but odds are he will not be the next head coach in Green Bay.
One of the biggest issues the Packers had this past season was not being able to score on offense. Even with Aaron Rodgers under center, the Packers only average 23.5 points per game which ranked 14th in the NFL. So whoever comes in to be the next head coach, the No. 1 priority is to install an offense that can get Rodgers back to an MVP level.
Here’s a look at a few candidates who could be the next Packers head coach.
