The Green Bay Packers have fired special teams coordinator Shawn Slocum.

“I would like to thank Shawn for all of his contributions over the past nine years,” coach Mike McCarthy said. “He was a positive contributor to our success, including helping us win Super Bowl XLV. We wish Shawn, Michelle and their family the best moving forward.”
