Green Bay Packers hire Hafley as DC following Barry dismissal

The Green Bay Packers have hired Boston College head coach Jeff Hafley as their new defensive coordinator after firing Joe Barry last week.

The Packers finished the 2023 regular season with a 9-8 record to clinch a wild-card spot before inflicting a stunning 48-32 defeat on the Dallas Cowboys in their first postseason game.

Their playoff journey then ended in the divisional round with a 24-21 defeat to the San Francisco 49ers, who will meet the Kansas City Chiefs at Super Bowl LVIII next week.

Head coach Matt LaFleur described the team’s defensive performance as “fantastic” after that loss, but the franchise announced Barry had been relieved of his duties after three years in the role later that week.

On Wednesday, the team confirmed Hafley – who went 22-26 through four seasons in charge at Boston College – would succeed Barry.

“We are excited to welcome Jeff, his wife, Gina, and their daughters, Hope and Leah, to the Packers and the Green Bay community,” LaFleur said in a statement.

“Jeff has had success at every stop of his coaching career with an impressive track record of developing players at every level. We look forward to him leading our defense.”

Hafley led Boston College to a 7-6 record this season, beating the SMU Mustangs in the Fenway Bowl. He has rejected NFL coaching opportunities in the past but will now link up with longtime friend LaFleur in Green Bay for the 2024 campaign.
