Ahman Green wants to join Packers coaching staff

If the Green Bay Packers are interested, ex-Pro Bowl running back Ahman Green wants to join the coaching staff.

Green, who played eight seasons for the Packers, told TMZ Sports he’s already reached out to Packers coach Mike McCarthy and wants to help the team break out of its funk. Green Bay dropped to 4-5 this season after an ugly loss to the Washington Redskins on Sunday night.

“I would love to come in and help that running back crew, help that team because a lot of this game, people don’t realize that it’s a lot of mental part of it,” Green said. “You gotta be mentally strong to get through a dip like this.”

The Packers have the 20th-rated rushing offense. Maybe Green should consider coming out of retirement, which he jokes about in the interview.
