Mannion’s retirement from the NFL is immediate, and he has taken on the role of an assistant coach within the Packers’ staff, focusing on quarterbacks and the passing game. The specific title for Mannion’s coaching position is not disclosed, but his responsibilities will involve working closely with starting quarterback Jordan Love. Love had an outstanding season, guiding the Packers to the playoffs in 2023.

While Mannion’s official designation within the coaching staff remains unknown, he is set to collaborate with Jordan Love. This move aligns with Mannion’s connection to Green Bay’s head coach, Matt LaFleur. Mannion previously served as a backup quarterback for the Los Angeles Rams during LaFleur’s tenure as the offensive coordinator in the 2017 season.

Selected as the 89th overall pick in the third round of the 2015 NFL draft by the Los Angeles Rams, Mannion enjoyed a nine-year career that included stints with the Rams, Minnesota Vikings, and Seattle Seahawks. Over the course of his career, Mannion appeared in 14 games, making three starts, with his most recent start occurring in 2021 while playing for the Vikings.
