The Green Bay Packers suffered through one of their most disappointing regular seasons throughout Aaron Rodgers' illustrious career. Not only is the franchise facing a bevy of trade rumors surrounding their starting quarterback, but they're also in danger of losing a key member of their coaching staff to other open positions around the league.

One assistant coach has booked a second interview for the Indianapolis Colts' head coaching gig on Monday.

According to a report from NFL insider Tom Pelissero, the Colts are hosting Packers' special teams coordinator Rich Bisaccia for his second round of the interview process.

The Colts, are firing head coach Frank Reich, are narrowing down their list of candidates. Bisaccia is just one of five known candidates to receive a second interview in this process, joined by Jeff Saturday, Ejiro Evero, Raheem Morris and Wink Martindale.

Bisaccia joined Green Bay after serving as the Las Vegas Raiders' interim head coach for the final 12 games of the 2021 season. Not only did he lead Las Vegas to a 7-5 record, but snapped a four-year playoff drought. The Packers quickly desired his services in 2022.

Green Bay's special teams unit, which spoiled their playoff run in 2021, looked night and day this past year. Despite the losing record, Keisean Nixon led the league in returns, Mason Crosby bounced back from a career-worst year to hit 86.2% of his field goals, and the special teams defense looked more comfortable each and every week.

It will be a crushing blow to Matt LaFleur's staff if Bisaccia takes the Colts' head coaching gig.
