The Green Bay Packers announced on Friday that LBs coach Kevin Greene will step away from his coaching position with the team to spend more time with his family.
“I am stepping away from the NFL at this time in order to spend more time with my wife, Tara, and our children, Gavin and Gabrielle,” Greene said, via Packers.com. “I will miss coaching and will try to return after our kids move on to college if a team will have me.
“My experience here with the Green Bay Packers has been nothing but positive. I am eternally grateful for the opportunity that Mike McCarthy and Ted Thompson have blessed me with. I have a peace about the productivity that I helped bring forward in all of the fine young men that have been entrusted to me these past five years. I am most proud of all their accomplishments and the fine young men they’ve become in this league.”
Greene is one of 15 finalists for the Hall of Fame this year and has spent five season with the Packers as their linebackers coach.
I’m sure he’ll find plenty of interest once he decides he is ready to return to the sidelines.
