    A source familiar with the Packers' operation said it was expected that quarterbacks coach Tom Clements would replace Joe Philbin as offensive coordinator according to Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel. McCarthy didn't deny that the hire most likely would come from within, but he would not commit to anything right now. "Your first intent is to look within," McCarthy said. "That's where you start. But I don't want to talk about that now. This is Joe's moment. He deserves all the attention. You don't replace people like Joe. I'm going to miss him personally a whole lot, forget as a professional. He's someone I enjoy being around. He's a great guy. This is a very good opportunity for him." Clements is a logical choice for McCarthy because he has experience as a coordinator, serving from 2004-'05 in that capacity with the Buffalo Bills. He came to the Packers in '06 and has been quarterbacks coach all six years.
