Packers Hire New Assistant Offensive Line Coach

The Green Bay Packers will replace departing assistant offensive line coach Joel Hilgenberg with a veteran teacher of the position group. 

According to Rob Demovsky of ESPN, the Packers are giving the now vacant job to Steve Marshall, who has over 30 years of experience coaching the offensive line at various levels. His most recent job was as the offensive line coach at New Mexico State, but he's spent time at many major college programs, plus NFL stints with the Houston Texans and Cleveland Browns. 

Hilgenberg resigned from his post as offensive line assistant coach last week. He cited a need to spend more time with his family. 

Marshall, 57, coached the offensive line at the University of Colorado from 2011-12, when Green Bay's 2013 fourth-round pick David Bakhtiari was manning the tackle position. HIs appointment could be at least partially the result of the relationship formed during Bakhtiari's eventual drafting last April. 

Marshall played four years of college football at Louisville before breaking into the coaching ranks in 1979, with Plymouth State.
