GREEN BAY https://www.thepackersfanshop.com/Marcedes-Lewis-Jersey , Wis. (AP) — Clay Matthews looked up into the Lambeau Field suites to find his parents before walking down the stadium tunnel for what might be the last time as a member of the Green Bay Packers.An offseason of change awaits in Titletown following a second straight year without a playoff appearance.A coaching search is already underway after Mike McCarthy was fired in early December, which leaves the futures of upcoming free agents like Matthews up in the air. Matthews, one of the last remaining links to Green Bay's 2010 Super Bowl season, described the exit from the field following Sunday's 31-0 loss to Detroit as "a little bittersweet … I was waving up to my parents up in the suite.""So (my kids) will be waiting for me, wife, family and … I'll carry on as Dad," Matthews said.Players cleaned out their lockers on Monday and started meeting with interim head coach Joe Philbin and assistants for exit interviews. Philbin, who plans to interview for the position on a permanent basis, is handling the wrap-up responsibilities that come with the job, at least for the next few days.At 6-9-1, Green Bay finished under .500 for a second straight year. The Packers went 2-2 under Philbin, finally winning a road game in Week 16 after losing their first seven away from Lambeau.The affable Philbin seems to have won over some key players in the locker room with his leadership style, demeanor and dry humor. Rodgers and receiver Davante Adams have each said that they hope Philbin stays https://www.thepackersfanshop.com , though they don't expect to be part of the decision."Joe's funny, man, you've just got to get used to his type of personality," running back Jamaal Williams said Monday. "Joe's a good person … caring, always trying to look out for everybody."The offensive coordinator for the 2010 Super Bowl team in his first stint with Green Bay, Philbin has familiarity with the franchise and Rodgers. He coached the Miami Dolphins for three-plus seasons without a playoff appearance before being fired four games into the 2015 season."While it's important that (team executives) do know me, there (are) some things we haven't discussed. I want to present who I am, because it's not going to work if they don't like who I am," Philbin said Monday. "I think fit and alignment in this particular situation (with team executives) is absolutely vital. And if it's not, it won't work."The 57-year-old Philbin, who has coached for more than three decades, is also aware that the NFL is a business. In a team meeting before players began the chore of packing their belongings, Philbin said he "talked to them about embracing change Green Bay Packers Customized Jerseys , whatever that may be and not looking at it as a negative, looking at it as a positive."Regardless of whether the Packers stick with Philbin, the next coach will at least have Rodgers as a solid foundation on which to begin his tenure. The two-time MVP played through a left knee injury sustained in the season opener against the Bears, and then dealt with a sore groin late in the season before getting knocked out of the Lions game with a concussion.Rodgers' 62.3 percent completion percentage was his lowest since 2015 (60.7 percent). His 25 touchdown passes were a low for a season in which he played at least 15 games, though so were his two interceptions.The emergence of Adams into an elite receiver helped. But injuries to Randall Cobb and Geronimo Allison forced the Packers to turn to rookies perhaps earlier than expected to fill the void at the position.Besides Matthews, Cobb is the other notable veteran facing free agency. Given the youth in the receiving corps, Cobb's familiarity with Rodgers and ability to play the slot might be reasons to bring the receiver back.As for Matthews, he finished with a career-low 3½ sacks in his 10th season with the Packers, which was also the first under the tweaked 3-4 scheme installed by first-year coordinator Mike Pettine."All my kids are doing awesome out here, we love the people, we're settled here. It would be awesome if we stayed," Matthews said. "But as I continue to say, these are uncharted times and we'll kind of see what the future holds." This year Green Bay Packers T-Shirts , two teams fired their head coaches prior to week 17. The Cleveland Browns canned Hue Jackson after eight weeks, while our Green Bay Packers sacked Mike McCarthy following an abulysmal week 13 loss to the Arizona Cardinals. However, a few other teams decided to make their changes at that position immediately following their week 17 games, rather than waiting for the day after, often referred to as "Black Monday." Among the several they have made those decisions public already, two have fired their coaches, and as the day goes on we should hear about a few more teams doing so.Some of those fired individuals will be in line for head coaching jobs as soon as 2019 (Mike McCarthy in Cleveland, perhaps?) while others will likely have to take coordinator or position coach jobs for the time being. We're treating today's curds as a Black Monday primer to prepare everyone for what may transpire today.Todd Bowles has been fired by the Jets | Gang Green NationBowles was dealt a poor hand, and while it seems unlikely that he'll get another head coaching job this offseason, he should get some interviews at the very least. If not a head coach, Bowles could definitely be a candidate for a defensive coordinator job if the Packers' new head coach does not retain Mike Pettine. Buccaneers fire Dirk Koetter | Bucs NationKoetter lasted three years in Tampa as the head coach, and he made Ryan Fitzpatrick into a hugely productive passer. However, the Bucs' defenses were abysmal and a seed cond straight losing season was not going to be tolerated. Adam Gase's future in doubt in Miami | NFL.comKeep an eye on Gase https://www.thepackersfanshop.com/hats , Broncos coach Vance Joseph, and Arizona's Steve Wilks as some of the top candidates to be let go today.Packers could do clean sweep after blowout loss | Packersnews.comThere are still some fine coaches on this Packers staff - OL coach James Campen for one, probably Joe Whitt as another - but after Sunday's listless performance, would it surprise anyone if they were all gone in a few weeks? Corey Linsley extends Ironman steak on Packers' offensive line | Packers.comFor a second straight year, Linsley did not miss a single snap. That alone is worthy of praise, but he is certainly playing like one of the best centers in the league and is entirely deserving of a Pro Bowl spot, despite being voted only as an alternate.NFL head coaching candidates: names to know in 2019 | SBNation.comTo close it out for today, here's a look at several of the names who will interest teams around the league that end up in the hunt for new head coaches.
