Former Packers assistant coach Kevin Greene passes away
Hall of Fame pass rusher and longtime assistant coach to the Green Bay Packers Kevin Greene passed away at the age of 58.
The Pro Football Hall of Fame confirmed his death.
Greene played 15 seasons and 228 games in the NFL, reached 160 career sacks, made the Pro Bowl five times, and was named to the All Decade team of the 1990s.
At Green Bay, Greene will be remembered as one of the most famous and influential position coaches by Mike McCarthy's staff.
After retiring as a player, Greene spent five seasons (2009-2013) with the Packers as an external linebacker coach for Dom Capers' 3-4 defense. He helped develop Clay Matthews into a star and won a title with the Packers in Super Bowl XLV.
With Greene as the position coach, Matthews counted 50 sacks and made four Pro Bowl teams.
Greene played for the Los Angeles Rams, Pittsburgh Steelers, San Francisco 49ers and Carolina Panthers. He's had 10 seasons with at least 10 sacks and led the NFL twice in sacks. The Packers defeated Greene and the Panthers in the NFC championship game to advance to Super Bowl XXXI.
Greene was elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2016.
