The 68-year-old was promoted to Green Bay’s offensive coordinator in 2012, then became assistant head coach for 2015 and 2016.
After the 2016 campaign, Clements spent time outside of the NFL, but later worked with the Arizona Cardinals as a passing game coordinator and quarterbacks coach for the 2019 and 2020 seasons before retiring. . However, it looks like he’s back in what most will see as a blatant attempt to convince Rodgers to play at least one more year with the only NFL employer he’s had in nearly two decades.
