Moss had been a coach under Mike McCarthy during the former head coach’s entire Packers tenure. Early Tuesday, he sent a tweet about team leadership. He said the Packers need someone who will hold Aaron Rodgers and everybody else accountable.

9.5 hours after sending the tweet, Moss shared that he had been fired. The news was confirmed by multiple reporters.

Interim head coach Joe Philbin had the support of management in firing Moss.

There has been some thinking that Rodgers pushed for McCarthy’s firing. Moss seemed to show which side he was on.
