Son of Packers' Philbin reported missing
By Kevin Seifert
Let's all hope for a positive ending to this story from the Green Bay Press-Gazette.
The son of Green Bay Packers offensive coordinator Joe Philbin was reported missing Sunday night. Police in Oshkosh, Wis., are seeking information on the whereabouts of Michael T. Philbin, 21, who was last heard from early Sunday morning.
Joe Philbin has been a Packers assistant coach since 2003 and their offensive coordinator since 2007. He has been named as a candidate for multiple NFL head coaching jobs recently, and interviewed for openings last week with the Kansas City Chiefs and on Saturday with the Miami Dolphins.
The Dolphins job remains unfilled. It's also possible that Philbin could be a candidate for the Oakland Raiders' job if incumbent Hue Jackson is fired by new general manager Reggie McKenzie, a longtime former Packers executive. The Packers will reconvene Monday at Lambeau Field to begin preparations for Sunday's divisional playoff game against the New York Giants.
This is a private issue that will play out partly in public due to police involvement. We'll do our best to respect both sides of that.
