Packers OLB coach Winston Moss fired same day as Aaron Rodgers tweet

Tuesday night, the Green Bay Packers announced they "parted ways" with Moss, who was also linebackers coach.

Green Bay Packers interim coach Joe Philbin says a critical tweet by Winston Moss on Tuesday wasn't the only reason why the team chose to part ways with longtime assistant coach. Early Tuesday, he sent a tweet about team leadership.

Philbin, who had been the team's offensive coordinator before McCarthy was sacked, refused to comment further on the tweet and noted defensive assistant Scott McCurley will take over Moss' duties as outside linebackers coach. Joe Philbin will serve as interim head coach while the team begins its search for the next full-time head coach.

"I don't really worry about the future and honestly, each week is a tremendous challenge and we try to stay in the moment and focus on the task at hand, which this week is obviously considerable considering that we haven't had a lot of success down there", McDaniels said.

Moss shared another interesting tweet on Wednesday morning.

Despite being let go, Moss didn't seem to have any regrets.

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. Moss has long wanted to be a head coach.

Philbin wouldn't theorize on what point Moss was trying to make with the tweet. So it wasn't an easy decision, but I just didn't feel like the fit right now was where it needs to be.
