GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -The Green Bay Packers promoted Shawn Slocum to special teams coach on Thursday to replace the retired Mike Stock.
Slocum served as the Packers' special teams assistant coach the past three seasons, and coached 15 seasons at the collegiate level before coming to Green Bay. The Packers hired Curtis Fuller to fill Slocum's slot.
``Shawn has made a significant impact in developing many of our core special teams players,'' Packers coach Mike McCarthy said. ``Curtis is a young, up-and-coming coach who will be a positive addition to our staff.''
Fuller is a former NFL defensive back who played safety for Seattle, Green Bay and Carolina before being the special teams quality control assistant coach with the Oakland Raiders in 2007 and a coaching intern in Green Bay.
The 69-year-old Stock retired two weeks ago after 44 years in coaching, but had previously said he hoped he could return for a fourth season with the Packers.
