The Green Bay Packers have fired longtime associate head coach Winston Moss.

Moss, who also led the outside linebackers group, was let go by interim coach Joe Philbin.

"We thank Winston for his contributions to the Packers over the past 13 years," Philbin said in a statement. "We hope for the best for Winston and his family moving forward."

Moss was part of Mike McCarthy's original staff from 2006.
