Assistant Joe Philbin Denies Rumors He’s Leaving To Coach Tulane

Packers offensive coordinator Joe Philbin says there’s “no substance” to a report linking him with the head coaching job at Tulane. Philbin says he’s “got a great job here” in Green Bay and hasn’t talked to anybody at Tulane about the job as of Tuesday evening.

ESPN reported Monday that Tulane had interest in Philbin. Philbin has been with the Packers since 2003 and has been the team’s offensive coordinator since 2007, although offensive-minded Packers coach Mike McCarthy calls the plays. Philbin was a graduate assistant at Tulane from 1984-85 and has a master’s degree in education from the school.
