Green Bay Packers decided to split roads with top assistant coach Winston Moss on Tuesday, after Moss sent out a tweet many perceived as critical to quarterback Aaron Rodgers and team coaching staff.

Moss, who has been a linebackers coach for Packers since 2006 and an associate coach of Mike McCarthy since 2007, fired an interesting tweet on Tuesday afternoon. In this, Moss explains that Packers must find a head coach that will keep Rodgers (and the rest of the team) into a championship statistics.

About nine hours later, Wilson called a conversation from intermediate head coach Joe Philbin and told him that his services were no longer needed. Although it is currently unknown if Wilson’s termination came (at least in part) because of his tweet on the team’s coaching search, a follow-up on Tuesday night seems to be the case. After Moss shared the news of his shooting, he has taken “#ThanksTwitter”.

Packers released a short statement confirming Moss’s termination on Tuesday night.

“We thank Winston for his contribution to Packers for the past 13 years,” said Philbin. “We hope for the best for Winston and his family ahead.”

Moss, 52, spent his job in Green Bay near the knot to the coach Mike McCarthy, who was fired shortly after Packer’s stupid loss for Arizona Cardinals on Sunday. Moss was hired by McCarthy shortly after McCarthy adopted the team’s leadership application in 2006 and was considered the head coach’s right man.

With that in mind it might not be surprising that he was quick to follow McCarthy out
