Packers | K. Schottenheimer Leading Candidate To Join Staff

Tom Silverstein, of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports former Detroit Lions defensive coordinator Kurt Schottenheimer is the leading candidate to fill an opening on Green Bay Packers head coach Mike Sherman's defensive coaching staff, but he is unlikely to be the coordinator. Two NFL sources said Tuesday, Jan. 27, that Sherman had been courting Schottenheimer and was in discussions with the Lions over how to settle the one year left on Schottenheimer's contract. One of the sources said Schottenheimer was being courted as an assistant coach and probably would fill a position created by the promotion of assistant head coach / defensive backs Bob Slowik to defensive coordinator.
