Joe Barry will not return as the Green Bay Packers' defensive coordinator.

NFL Network reporter Tom Pelissero tweeted the news Wednesday morning.

Head coach Matt LaFleur confirmed the news shortly after, saying "We want to thank Joe for his committment and contributions to our success the past three seasons. These decisions are extremely difficult and Joe is one of the best men I've had the opportunity to work with in this league."

Barry has worked with the NFL for 22 seasons, including the last three years as defensive coordinator for the Packers. ESPN's Adam Schefter says Barry could remain on the coaching staff in some capacity.

We are working to learn more about the future of the defensive coordinator position for the team. Some of the names on the table include Brandon Staley, Mike Zimmer, Wink Martindale, Ron Rivera, Leslie Frazier and Mike Caldwell.
