As new Packers coach Matt LaFleur began building his first coaching staff in earnest on Thursday, Zook got the word he expected: Zook won't be retained from ex-coach Mike McCarthy’s staff.

Hackett is the son of former University of Pittsburgh and USC head coach Paul Hackett, who mentored ex-Packers coach Mike McCarthy early in McCarthy’s coaching career at Pitt and with the Kansas City Chiefs.
