Packers Coach Asked About Joe Philbin's Interview With Chiefs

On Wednesday news came down via ESPN that the Kansas City Chiefs were interviewing Joe Philbin, the Green Bay Packers offensive coordinator, for the head coaching position. Philbin was the only known candidate for the Chiefs job at the time, outside of Romeo Crennel.

Packers head coach Mike McCarthy was asked about the report on Philbin and said:

"I think we have a great staff. A number of excellent assistants. I think the world of Joe Philbin. The job he's done here speaks for itself. But as far as other opportunities that are going on in the NFL or college football, it's not really my place to talk about it. But, again, we have an outstanding coaching staff and I'm very proud of that."

As for Philbin's chances of ending up in Kansas City...that we don't know.

I did find it interesting, though, to hear ESPN's Adam Schefter say on Ross Tucker's podcast, "I think Joe Philbin is going to be Scott Pioli's kind of guy, to be honest with you. Humble, quiet, hard-working guy who's from Massachusetts. I could see Scott Pioli falling for Joe Philbin." Schefter's just speculating here, obviously, but interesting nonetheless. He said he didn't know who the favorite was, if there even was one.

So we go back to waiting on news of the Chiefs next head coach.
