On Now
Coming Up
  • Sat., Apr. 26, 2014 8:00AM - 6:00PM CDT Packers Pro Shop Tent Sale

    The sale is taking place earlier than in previous years, due to the construction at Lambeau Field and the work that the Pro Shop team must complete in preparation for the new store, which will open this summer. Visitors to Lambeau Field should enter the Atrium through the Oneida Nation Gate. Parking is available in the lot on Lambeau Field’s east side near the Oneida Nation Gate, which can be accessed off Oneida Street and Lombardi Avenue.

    The sale will feature the traditional mix of Pro Shop items greatly reduced in price and other special purchases.

    The team’s football operations staff also has provided Packers team apparel no longer in use, including a large assortment of t-shirts, shorts, jackets, jerseys and pants. Some items are practice-worn gear not normally available in the Pro Shop.

    The tent sale began in 1994 in the parking lot outside the former Pro Shop on the north end of Lambeau Field and grew into a popular event. Now in its 11th year in the Atrium, the tent sale also was held in the west side stadium concourse in previous years.

Coaches

John Rushing
Defensive Quality Control

Biography

The Green Bay Packers named John Rushing defensive quality control coach on February 7, 2014.

Rushing will be entering his sixth season with the Packers in 2014, having served as offensive assistant/special teams for the past two seasons. Prior to that, he worked as the offensive quality control coach for Green Bay for two seasons (2009-10) and assistant wide receivers/special teams in 2011. In Rushing’s first five years with the club, Green Bay finished in the top 10 in the league in scoring in all five seasons and in the top 10 in total offense four times. He came to Green Bay after coaching 13 years in the college ranks at four schools, including six seasons (2003-08) as the defensive backs coach at Utah State. Rushing was a four-year starter at defensive back for Washington State (1991-94) and set a school record by starting 46 games.

2013 BIO:

  • Joined Packers on Feb. 3, 2009, as offensive quality control coach; named assistant wide receivers/special teams coach on Feb 25, 2011, and offensive assistant/special teams on Feb. 13, 2012. 
  • Enters his fifth season as an NFL coach after 13 years in the college ranks with four schools, three of them Division I.
  • Coached current Packers CB Jarrett Bush at Utah State.
  • A four-year starter at Washington State, twice earned honorable mention All-Pacific-10 honors as a defensive back.

 
John Rushing begins his second season as the Packers’ offensive assistant/special teams after one season as assistant wide receivers/special teams coach and two years as offensive quality control coach, continuing his first venture into the NFL after 13 years in the college coaching ranks.

Named to his new post on Feb. 13, 2012, by Head Coach Mike McCarthy, Rushing originally joined the Packers on Feb. 3, 2009, as offensive quality control coach after spending the 2008 training camp with the Packers through the NFL’s Minority Coaching Internship Program. He was named assistant wide receivers/special teams coach on Feb. 25, 2011.

Last season, Rushing’s assignment was to assist with the Packers’ running backs. He helped accelerate the transition for the group’s new position coach, Alex Van Pelt, by sharing the nuances of the team’s offense following his hire in February 2012. Rushing helped prepare five different players to start in the Packers’ backfield, a group beset by various injuries throughout the season,

In 2011, Rushing assisted with a wide receiver group that set franchise records and led the league in receiving yards (3,667) and receiving touchdowns (38) as a unit. For the first time in team history, the Packers had five wide receivers each catch 25-plus passes on the season. Rushing also assisted with a special teams unit that was tied for No. 13 in the Dallas Morning News’ special teams rankings, the club’s best finish since 2007. The Packers tied for No. 2 in the league in special teams penalties with only nine on the season, half the number the team committed in 2010.

Rushing came to Green Bay from Utah State, where he spent six seasons (2003-08) coaching defensive backs. During his tenure there, Rushing coached current Packers cornerback and special teamer Jarrett Bush, who ranked sixth in the NCAA in passes defensed in 2005 with 1.36 per game.

Additionally, Rushing coached the Aggies’ punt return unit. In 2007, Kevin Robinson led the nation with an 18.9-yard average on punt returns, and he was selected in the sixth round (No. 182 overall) of the 2008 NFL Draft by the Kansas City Chiefs. Robinson, who is Rushing’s younger brother, returned 19 kickoffs for 420 yards (22.1 avg.) and 11 punts for 94 yards (8.5 avg.) in eight games with the Chiefs in ’08.

Prior to his time at Utah State, Rushing coached the secondary at Montana State for three seasons (2000-02), where he worked with Joey Thomas, a third-round draft choice of the Packers in 2004.

Rushing’s first Division I job was as a graduate assistant coach for the secondary at Boise State for two years (1998-99), where he coached S Quintin Mikell, who most recently played for the St. Louis Rams and was named to the Pro Bowl in 2009. He began his coaching career at Merced Union (Calif.) High School in 1995, his alma mater, before moving on to the college game at Willamette University in Salem, Ore., for two years (1996-97). He coached the secondary there and was a part of Willamette’s Division III national runner-up squad in 1997.

As a player, Rushing started all four years as a defensive back at Washington State (1991-94) and set a school record by starting 46 games. He earned honorable mention All-Pacific-10 Conference honors as a freshman and sophomore, and in 1991, he also was named to the Freshman All-American team by Sporting News.

During his senior season of 1994, Washington State ranked second in the NCAA in both total defense (229 yards per game) and scoring defense (12.1 points per game).

As a prep, Rushing was a two-sport standout at Merced Union. He started at running back and safety on a 14-0 section championship team that was nationally ranked by USA Today. In track and field, he also qualified for the state championships in the 100- and 200-meter dashes.

Born Feb. 26, 1972, in Merced, Calif., Rushing earned his degree in sociology from Washington State in 1995 and a master’s degree in education from Boise State in 2005.

Rushing and his wife, Angela, have three daughters, Nataya, Tatiana and Kamiah, and a son, John DaShir. Rushing enjoys bowling and playing golf.
