John Rushing
Offensive Quality Control

Second NFL season
Second Packers Season

John Rushing begins his second season as the Packers' offensive quality control coach in 2010, continuing his first venture into the NFL after 13 years in the college coaching ranks.

Named to his position on Feb. 3, 2009, by Head Coach Mike McCarthy, Rushing spent the 2008 training camp with the Packers through the NFL's Minority Coaching Internship Program.

He came to Green Bay from Utah State, where he spent six seasons (2003-08) coaching defensive backs. During his tenure there, Rushing coached current Packers defensive back and special teamer Jarrett Bush, who ranked sixth in the NCAA in passes defensed in 2005 with 1.36 per game.

Additionally, Rushing coached the Aggies' punt return unit. In 2007, Kevin Robinson led the nation with an 18.9-yard average on punt returns, and he was selected in the sixth round (182nd overall) of the 2008 NFL Draft by the Kansas City Chiefs. Robinson, who is Rushing's younger brother, returned 19 kickoffs for 420 yards (22.1 avg.) and 11 punts for 94 yards (8.5 avg.) in eight games played for the Chiefs in '08.

Prior to his time at Utah State, Rushing coached the secondary at Montana State for three seasons (2000-02), where he worked with Joey Thomas, a third-round draft choice of the Packers in 2004.

Rushing's first Division I job was as a graduate assistant coach for the secondary at Boise State for two years (1998-99), where he coached current Philadelphia Eagles S Quintin Mikell, who was named to the Pro Bowl in 2009. He began his coaching career at Merced Union High School in California in 1995, his alma mater, before moving on to the college game at Willamette University in Salem, Ore., for two years (1996-97). He coached the secondary there and was a part of Willamette's Division III national runner-up squad in 1997.

As a player, Rushing started all four years as a defensive back at Washington State (1991-94) and set a school record by starting 46 games. His freshman and sophomore seasons, he earned honorable mention All-Pac-10 Conference honors, and in 1991, he also was named to Sporting News Freshman All-America team.

During his senior season of 1994, Washington State ranked second in the NCAA in both total defense (229 yards per game) and scoring defense (12.1 points per game).

As a prep, Rushing was a two-sport standout at Merced Union. He started at running back and safety on a 14-0 section championship team that was nationally ranked in USA Today. In track and field, he also qualified for the state championships in the 100- and 200-meter dashes.

Rushing earned his degree in sociology from Washington State in 1995 and a master's degree in education from Boise State in 2005.

Born in Merced, Calif., Rushing and his fiancee, Angela, have three daughters, Nataya, Tatiana and Kamiah. He enjoys bowling and playing golf.
