QB coach possibilities

McCarthy reportedly interviews Logan, Clements

Former East Carolina coach Steve Logan and former Buffalo Bills offensive coordinator Tom Clements have entered the picture to be the next quarterbacks coach for the Green Bay Packers.

The Green Bay Press-Gazette reported today that new Packers coach Mike McCarthy interviewed both Wednesday at the Senior Bowl in Mobile, Ala. Coaches and scouts from all NFL teams have gathered there this week to evaluate draft prospects.

McCarthy also has been considering Alex Van Pelt, whom he coached while the two were at the University of Pittsburgh from 1989-92. Van Pelt was named quarterbacks coach at the University of Buffalo earlier this month.

Logan is a former head coach at East Carolina from 1992-2002. Packers new offensive coordinator Jeff Jagodzinski worked on Logan's staff from 1992-96 and likely recommended Logan to McCarthy.

Logan has never coached in the NFL but worked in NFL Europe the past two springs and was quarterbacks coach of the league's MVP each year, Rohan Davey in 2004 and Dave Ragone last year.

Clements has been an NFL assistant since 1997 and was Buffalo's offensive coordinator the last two years. New Bills coach Dick Jauron did not retain the 52-year-old Clements.

Clements played quarterback at Notre Dame and 12 seasons professionally — 11 in the Canadian Football League and one in the NFL with the Kansas City Chiefs in 1980. Before becoming Buffalo's offensive coordinator, he was quarterbacks coach for Pittsburgh (2001 to 2003), Kansas City (2000) and New Orleans (1997 to 1999).
