Green Bay Packers: Former Lions defensive coordinator Kurt Schottenheimer is being courted by coach Mike Sherman, but apparently not to fill the vacancy left by the firing of Ed Donatell. According to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel Schottenheimer will be named assistant coach and probably would fill a position created by the promotion of assistant head coach / defensive backs coach Bob Slowik to defensive coordinator. Schottenheimer is still part of the Lions staff but head coach Steve Mariucci has given him permission to start seeking employment elsewhere.
