Green Bay Packers Head Coach Matt LaFleur announced that Maurice Drayton will not return as special teams coordinator and John Dunn has been promoted to tight ends coach.

Drayton has coached in the NFL for six seasons, including the last four seasons on the special teams coaching staff for the Packers (assistant from 2018-20).

"We are grateful for all that Mo brought to our team the last several seasons," said LaFleur. "He is a great man who is loved by our players and coaches and contributed a lot to our success. We wish nothing but the best for Mo, Tonya and the rest of their family moving forward."

Dunn is entering his sixth season in the NFL and second with the Packers, having worked as a senior analyst for Green Bay last season. He previously coached tight ends for the New York Jets (2019-20) and was a football assistant (2016) and offensive assistant with the Chicago Bears (2017), working with the wide receivers and quarterbacks as well as helping to install the offensive line protections. Between those two stops in the NFL, Dunn was the offensive coordinator at the University of Connecticut in 2018. From 2011-15, he coached tight ends and was the recruiting coordinator at the University of Maryland and was an offensive graduate assistant (2008-09) and offensive intern (2010) at Louisiana State University. Dunn was a walk-on quarterback and tight end at the University of North Carolina (2001-03) before a neck injury ended his playing career. He started his coaching career at his alma mater, working as a student assistant (2004), offensive quality control coach (2005) and offensive graduate assistant (2006-07) for the Tar Heels.
