The best story in the NFL ahead of the Super Bowl is the Green Bay Packers fan applying for the defensive coordinator position. The story is trending again on social media with many NFL fans having incredible reactions. Long time Packers fan Bill Port applied for the team’s vacant coordinator position and it was reported that he previously applied for the head caching job as well before Matt LaFleur was hired.
NFL Trending Story Of Packers Fan Getting Rejection Letter
Perhaps the most comedic part of the story is the fact that CEO of the Packers Mark Murphy responded to the fan and sent him a rejection letter. The letter read:
“Bill, Thanks so much for your cover letter and resume regarding our defensive coordinator position. While your fantasy football experience is impressive, I regret to inform you that we have decided to go in a different direction. I hear the [Chicago] Bears have an opening — you look to be a perfect fit for them. Thanks again. Sincerely—Mark.”
Port did not expect to get a letter or anything in return obviously, as he just did this for comedy. He was quoted saying:
“I wasn’t expecting a response,” he told Ryman. “I was hoping someone in (Murphy’s) office would get a chuckle and they’d show it to him and he’d get a chuckle.”
The NFL world has been loving the story as many of us fans feel that we can be calling plays in the NFL after playing some Madden or coaching up our fantasy teams. Maybe Port will be able to get a job in Chicago.
NFL Fans React To Viral Job Application
NFL fans have been loving the fact that Port got a letter back from the Green Bay Packers, as many of us have a hard time getting a rejection letter back from any of the job we apply to. Many Fans took to X to share how they felt about this amazing story. A few of the best fan reactions were posted on social media.
“This is actually kind of awesome!”
“This is how legends are born. Looks out @BlueJays I’m coming for that GM position!!”
“Great sense of humor from both…”
While Port was unable to get the job maybe he will continue to apply. The Packers will look to continue rising next season with phenom Jordan Love and sadly Port will not be on the sidelines to coach up the defense.
