Adam Stenavich’s history with the Packers

Stenavich joined Green Bay in 2019 as an offensive line coach. He served in that position for the 2019-20 season. Last year he also took on the role of run game coordinator. Under the guidance of Stenavich, the duo of a couple of Packers’ running backs made an impressive record.

Aaron Jones and AJ Dillon had 1,190 and 1,116 yards, respectively. They became the second duo in the history of the Packers to record more than 1,100 yards from scrimmage in a single season. The feat was first achieved by John Brockington and MacArthur Lane, with 1,270 and 1,106 all the way back in 1972.
