GREEN BAY, Wis. – The Green Bay Packers have fired associate head coach Winston Moss after he shared a critical tweet Tuesday.
“We thank Winston for his contributions to the Packers over the past 13 years,” interim head coach Joe Philbin wrote in an announcement saying they were parting ways with the coach. “We hope for the best for Winston and his family moving forward.”
Moss announced on Twitter that the Packers were let him go, adding #thankstwitter to the end of the tweet.
About nine hours before the announcement, Moss had fired off a separate tweet demanding the team hire leadership that will hold Aaron Rodgers and other players to a Lombardi standard. He ended this tweet with #losingsucks.
Moss later added that he had served the Packers with his heart and soul and has no regrets about his time with the team.
This comes after the team fired head coach Mike McCarthy during a dismal 4-7-1 season. He was 125-77-2 all-time as head coach in Green Bay.
