McCarthy gives up offensive play-calling duties

The next Packers football game will be the first in the Mike McCarthy era with someone else calling the offensive plays.

McCarthy announced a re-shuffled coaching staff Thursday, handing off his play calling duties to associate head coach Tom Clements. Edgar Bennett, formerly the wide receivers coach, will take Clements' old title as offensive coordinator.

The head coach says the changes have been made to help the Packers win championships. McCarthy was criticized for conservative play calling in key situations in the Packers NFC Championship Game loss in Seattle in January.

Jerry Montgomery joins the coaching staff from the University of Oklahoma as a defensive front assistant, and Ron Zook has been promoted to special teams coordinator.
