Vanderbilt is already in the market for a new offensive coordinator after Andy Ludwig took the same position at Utah. Now, reportedly, the Commodores are in the market for a new special teams coordinator.
The Packers have hired Vanderbilt's Shawn Mennenga as special teams coach, a source said. It's a big hire for new Packers coach Matt LaFleur because the Packers ranked last in the NFL in special teams, according to Rick Gosselin's annual rankings.

Shawn Mennenga was at Vanderbilt for a year, coming from the Cleveland Browns to coach special teams. That unit showed considerable improvement in 2018, particularly in punting. (Kicking was a bit of a different issue, though that was much more personnel than coaching-related.) But Mennenga is headed back to the NFL now to be the Green Bay Packers’ special teams coach.
