Moss, who has been a linebackers coach for the Packers since 2006 and an associate head coach under Mike McCarthy since 2007, fired off an interesting tweet on Tuesday afternoon.
Earlier Tuesday, Moss wrote on Twitter, "Ponder this. what Championship teams have are great leadership!" "Josh McDaniels may be the best thing for Aaron Rodgers in terms of giving him a system that he can trust, but I don't think Aaron Rodgers wants that". Payton and McCarthy became head coaches during the same offseason, and even interviewed for the same position with Green Bay. This failure to hold Rodgers accountable appears to be what Moss is referencing.
About nine hours later, Wilson got a call from interim head coach Joe Philbin letting him know that his services were no longer needed.
XFL To Reveal Teams And Venues At Today's Press Conference
The XFL is now testing out elements of its format with junior college football teams to solidify a final on-field product. Also, the league said tickets will have an "affordable price" but the ticket price range was not announced.
McDaniels is certainly worthy of consideration for the head coaching vacancy; he's an offensive football wizard, and his resume in New England working under Belichick speaks wonders.
"Him and I, like any relationship, we have our incredible times and we have our times where we butt heads", Rodgers said. So it wasn't an easy decision, but I just didn't feel like the fit right now was where it needs to be. "So. came to that decision". See the team's official statement, here. And we would finish every time that we talked - whether it's Monday afternoon up in his office, or the Thursdays we used to spend in the team room, or Friday upstairs, or Saturday in the QB room - and we'd hug each other and tell each other we love each other.
