Winston Moss
Assistant Head Coach/Linebackers

Biography

Entering his 27th season in the NFL, 16th as an NFL assistant coach and ninth with the Packers, Winston Moss begins his eighth year in the role of assistant head coach. In addition, he will have responsibility for all linebackers for his fourth season in Green Bay, reprising the role he had from 2006-08.

Named to the assistant head coach post by Head Coach Mike McCarthy on Jan. 15, 2007, Moss impressed McCarthy with his leadership skills when the two worked together for five seasons in New Orleans and again in 2006 in Green Bay. His position responsibility was modified to inside linebackers from 2009-13 with the switch to a 3-4 defense and the addition of outside linebackers coach Kevin Greene to the staff. In February 2014, Moss’s position title shifted back to all linebackers, in addition to his duties as assistant head coach.

Since Moss was named assistant head coach in 2007, the Packers rank No. 1 in the NFL in interceptions (155), No. 3 in total takeaways (211), No. 3 in opponent passer rating (76.9) and No. 6 in points allowed per game (20.8).

Moss has tutored LB A.J. Hawk, who became the franchise’s all-time tackle leader (1,025) in 2013, since Hawk entered the league in ’06. Hawk has led the team in tackles five times during his career, which ties him with Nick Barnett for the franchise record.

In 2013, Hawk paced the club with 153 tackles, the second-highest total of his career behind only his 155 tackles as a rookie in ’06. Playing the “Buck” LB position, Hawk also registered a career-high five sacks, an interception, a fumble recovery, a forced fumble and five passes defensed. Brad Jones started 12 games at the “Mack” LB spot and finished No. 3 on the team with 98 tackles while adding three sacks.

With Jones sidelined for four games and Robert Francois limited to just four contests due to a season-ending Achilles injury, third-year LB Jamari Lattimore saw the most significant action of his career from scrimmage in 2013. Lattimore posted 29 tackles, two sacks and a forced fumble in his four starts and finished the season with a career-high 38 tackles.

In 2012, Hawk led the team with 142 tackles and added three sacks. With Desmond Bishop (preseason opener) and D.J. Smith (Week 6) lost to season-ending injuries, Jones was inserted into the starting lineup at “Mack” LB after playing on the outside in his first three seasons. Jones opened the final 10 games and finished the season with a career-high 102 tackles, two sacks, six passes defensed and a forced fumble.

In 2011, Bishop entered the season as the starter for the first time in his career and went on to be named a Pro Bowl alternate, registering career highs with a team-leading 142 tackles and five sacks despite missing three games due to a calf injury.

With Bishop and Hawk both sidelined with injuries in December 2011, a pair of young LBs, second-year man Francois and rookie Smith, were pressed into duty and responded under the direction of Moss. In his two starts, Francois posted 17 total tackles, an interception and a forced fumble. Smith was the lone Green Bay rookie to appear in all 16 games, and his three starts paced the team’s rookies. In those starts, Smith led the team with 30 tackles, while adding an INT vs. Oakland in Week 14.

In 2010, Moss was a member of a staff that helped Green Bay finish No. 2 in the NFL in scoring defense at 15.0 points per game, the team’s best mark since 1996 (13.1). The Packers finished No. 5 in overall defense, the team’s second straight top-five ranking.

After Barnett was lost for the season in Week 4 of 2010 due to a wrist injury, Bishop stepped into the starting role at MLB for the remainder of the season and flourished under Moss’ direction. Bishop finished second on the team with 121 tackles, while posting three sacks. His career-high 10 passes defensed were the most by a Packers LB since John Anderson recorded 15 in 1981.

Hawk played in all 16 contests with 15 starts at BLB and assumed more of an every-down role with nickel LB Brandon Chillar limited to just eight games due to a shoulder injury. Hawk paced the team with 134 tackles, his fifth straight season either leading the team or finishing second in the category. He added a career-high three interceptions, which tied for the lead among NFL linebackers, and matched his career best with nine passes defensed to earn Pro Bowl recognition for the first time in his career.

In ’09, Moss was part of a staff that guided the defense to a No. 2 overall ranking in the NFL, the highest ranking since the ’96 team finished as the No. 1 defense. Green Bay led the NFL in rushing defense for the first time in team history, and its average of 83.3 rushing yards allowed per game set a team record for any season. Barnett returned from a serious knee injury to start all 16 games at MLB and lead the team in tackles with 122, a franchise-record fifth time in his career (later matched by Hawk) that he led the squad in tackles, and also register a career-high four sacks.

In 2008, Hawk made a rather seamless transition to middle linebacker to fill Barnett’s spot after he was lost for the season to a torn ACL in Week 10, while Bishop and Chillar both contributed at Hawk’s former weak-side position. In 2007, Barnett was named second-team All-Pro after leading the Packers in tackles for the fourth time in five seasons and posting a then-career-high 3½ sacks along with two INTs and numerous big plays late in games.

Moss spent a total of six seasons with the Saints, where he also coached linebackers. Originally hired by the Saints in 2000 as defensive assistant/quality control, he was promoted to linebackers coach near the end of that season to replace John Bunting, who departed to become head coach at the University of North Carolina. Moss began his coaching career in 1998 as a defensive quality-control assistant for the Seattle Seahawks, the club for whom he played his final three NFL seasons.

A veteran of 11 seasons and 155 NFL games (146 starts), the former linebacker played for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (1987-90) and the Los Angeles Raiders (1991-94), in addition to the Seahawks (1995-97). Over the course of his career, Moss recorded 768 tackles, 20½ sacks, six INTs and a fumble recovery for a TD.

In 1993, when Moss led the Raiders in tackles on a team that advanced to the AFC Divisional playoffs, he earned the Ed Block Courage Award after a vote of his teammates. Moss also was a three-time defensive captain and received the 1996 NFL Players Association Unsung Hero Award while with the Seahawks.

A four-year letterman at the University of Miami (Fla.), he and current Packers senior personnel executive Alonzo Highsmith helped the Hurricanes win the national championship after the 1983 season under Howard Schnellenberger.

Born Dec. 24, 1965, in Miami, Fla., Moss attended Miami (Fla.) Southridge High School and was an all-state linebacker. He and his wife, Zoila, have three sons, Winston Jr., 20, Robert, 15, and Marcus, 12, and two daughters, Victoria, 19, and Isabella, 6. In his spare time, Moss enjoys spending time with his family and playing golf.
