-- Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy's decision to replace Alex Van Pelt with Frank Cignetti Jr. as the team's quarterbacks coach didn't sit right with Aaron Rodgers, as documented last month.
"I thought that was an interesting change, really without consulting me," Rodgers said of his former position coach's departure on ESPN Radio's Golic and Wingo.
"There's a close connection between quarterback and quarterback coach and that was an interesting decision."
The only obstacle that Cignetti needs to overcome is getting on the same page with Rodgers, which could be difficult to do after sharing such an interpersonal relationship with his former position coach for four seasons.
"I don't think it's difficult at all," Cignetti told ESPN's Rob Demovsky of coaching Rodgers.
"Because one, coaching's teaching. ANd getting in that quarterback classroom, you build a relationship and you understand that, hey, we're an extension of each other. And it's so exciting to go out on that field whether it's the practice field or game field and see these guys execute and make plays, I'm really looking forward to it."
That's something that McCarthy will likely leave to the two of them and allow their newfound relationship to evolve on its own. Cignetti's hiring is just one of the many coaching and personnel staff changes to take place in Green Bay just in January alone.
"I never got into this to be popular," McCarthy said. "That's the reality of being a head coach in this league."
