"Again, I think it's important, as I said to the team, we've got to be professional, accountable, respectful and punctual".

The Green Bay Packers parted ways with associate head coach Winston Moss on Tuesday hours after the linebackers coach posted a tweet weighing in on the team's head coaching search. Although it's now unknown whether Wilson's dismissal came (at least partly) because of his tweet on the team's coaching search, a follow-up posted Tuesday night seems to suggest that might be the case.

Philbin spoke on Wednesday before his first practice as the interim coach to replace the fired Mike McCarthy. Some have speculated there was tension between Rodgers and McCarthy - who was with the team for 12-plus seasons - but the star quarterback said that was not the case.

"We have good people", Kraft told Guregian.

"We thank Winston for his contributions to the Packers over the past 13 years", said Philbin.

Mitch Marsh dropped for first India Test
The Adelaide Oval hosted the first ever day-night Test match which was played between Australia and New Zealand in November 2015. Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Ishant Sharma, Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Shami and Umesh Yadav form a potent attack.

Josh McDaniels once again is being mentioned in National Football League head-coaching rumors. So it wasn't an easy decision, but I just didn't feel like the fit right now was where it needs to be.

However, McCarthy's firing might not have been the only reason Moss was relieved of his role. Rodgers said he and McCarthy bonded throughout their time together.

"And then obviously just sequencing the calls the right way and hopefully they work when we call 'em".

"I've seen it across the league, although each year stands on its own". We're disappointed in where we are now.
