VETERAN PLAYER ROB DAVIS TO ASSIST
The Green Bay Packers Thursday named Pro Personnel Assistant Tim Terry as the acting Director of Player Development. Veteran player Rob Davis will assist Terry with his duties. Ted Thompson, Executive Vice President, General Manager and Director of Football Operations, announced the moves.
As the Director of Player Development, Terry will be vital in maintaining locker room cohesiveness and overall player health. He will assist players in acclimating to their roles, both on and off the field. Though his new responsibilities will take precedent, the 33-year-old Terry will still be involved with the pro personnel department.
The Temple alum is in his third year with the Packers. Terry previously played linebacker for four NFL seasons and one for the Hamilton Tiger-Cats of the Canadian Football League.
Davis enters his 11th season as Green Bay's long snapper, his 12th NFL season overall. He holds the team's longest active streak of regular-season games played (151), behind only Brett Favre (239).
"The Director of Player development is an extremely important position within our organization," Thompson said. "Both Tim and Rob are well-respected individuals in the locker room and throughout the building. They also have a great feel for this community and the team's unique relationship with it. I am confident that they will both do well in these roles."
George Koonce, who served in the role in 2006, resigned this past spring to accept a job within Marquette University's athletic department.
