Clements Likely To Become Green Bay's OC

With Joe Philbin moving on to become the head coach of the Dolphins, the Packers are in need of a new offensive coordinator.

Green Bay quarterbacks coach Tom Clements is likely to replace Philbin, according to a source.

Packers head coach Mike McCarthy didn't deny that the hire most likely would come from within, but he would not commit to anything right now.

"Your first intent is to look within," McCarthy said. "That's where you start. But I don't want to talk about that now. This is Joe's moment. He deserves all the attention.

"You don't replace people like Joe. I'm going to miss him personally a whole lot, forget as a professional. He's someone I enjoy being around. He's a great guy. This is a very good opportunity for him."
