Chris Gizzi fired as Packers strength/conditioning coordinatorGREEN BAY, Wisconsin: Chris Gizzi, who has served as the strength and conditioning coordinator for the Green Bay Packers for five seasons, has been let go.

Gizzi spent ten seasons as a member of Green Bay’s strength department before starting as a linebacker for the team from 2000 to 2001. In 2019, he assumed the role of coordinator for strength and conditioning.

“We value Chris’ commitment and contributions to our achievements during his tenure with the Packers,” Packers head coach Matt LaFleur said in a statement announcing the departure on Thursday.

One day after Joe Barry was let go by the Packers as defensive coordinator following three seasons, the news was made.

The Niners (13-5) needed to come from behind for a change after leading the entire regular season. Brock Purdy and McCaffrey did just enough on the last drive to advance San Francisco to its third consecutive NFC championship game. The winner of Tampa Bay vs. Detroit on Sunday will play the Niners the following weekend in hopes of earning a trip to the Super Bowl.

During the game-winning drive, Purdy completed 6 of 7 passes for 47 yards, including a 10-yard touchdown to Brandon Aiyuk and a 17-yard pass to Chris Conley to convert a third down.

“There’s a reason it’s four quarters, obviously. Thus, when I first started, I thought, “Man, I have to get better, I have to play football efficiently,” Purdy remarked. “But when it comes down to it, with the season on the line, you’ve got to make it happen for your boys around you.”

After McCaffrey’s touchdown run on third-and-short, the 49ers defense held strong, allowing San Francisco to defeat Green Bay (10-9) for the fifth week in a row. Dre Greenlaw picked off Jordan Love twice.
