Donatell, Jagodzinski Relieved Of Their Packers Coaching Duties


Defensive coordinator Ed Donatell and tight ends coach Jeff Jagodzinski have been relieved of their duties on the Green Bay Packers coaching staff, GM/Head Coach Mike Sherman announced Friday.

The 46-year-old Donatell, a 14-year NFL coaching veteran, had served as defensive coordinator since 2000, when he was named to the staff by Sherman as Green Bay's incoming head coach.

Jagodzinski, who is 40, coached in the college ranks for 14 years before being named to Ray Rhodes' Packer staff in 1999. He was retained as tight ends coach when Sherman succeeded Rhodes.

Donatell, a Glenville, (W.Va.) State alumnus, coached defensive backs for the New York Jets (1990-94) and the Denver Broncos (1995-99) before joining the Sherman staff in 2000.

Jagodzinski, a West Allis, Wis., native and a former University of Wisconsin-Whitewater fullback, was named to the Packers' staff after serving as offensive coordinator at Boston College in 1997-98.
