As Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers prepares for his 15th season, he’ll work with a new head coach and offensive coordinator, but he’ll have a familiar face in his quarterbacks coach. A Green Bay quality-control coach in 2014 and 2015 and receivers coach in 2016 and 2017, Getsy spent last season as offensive coordinator at Mississippi State. “Installing a new offense and the new principles and all that stuff, we’ve got a lot of work to do,” said Getsy, who played QB in college at Akron. “We’ve got a lot of work to do to get him to dive into this offense fully and being able to function at a high level.”
The Czech winger and 13-time NHL All-Star has recovered from injuries that kept him off the ice for more than a year. Jagr played Monday for the Kladno Knights, the hometown club he owns in the Czech Republic. Jagr, 47, didn’t score in nearly 18 minutes but celebrated as Kladnowon 2-0 at Havirov in a Czech second-league game. “Above all, I’m happy that I was finally able to play,” Jagr said. “It’s not easy (at) my age just to train.” Kladno, in fourth place, is seeking to reach the playoffs and qualify for the top league. It trails second-place Vsetin by three points with three regular-season games left.
