GREEN BAY, WI (WTAQ) - The Green Bay Packers lost a second assistant coach Friday.  

Outside linebackers coach Kevin Greene said he was stepping down after five years for personal reasons. He said he wanted to be with his family a little more.  

Until today, there was no indication that Greene was planning to leave, or looking for another NFL job.  

Greene -- a former pro linebacker himself -- said he's had nothing but positive experiences in Green Bay. He said he would miss coaching -- and once his two kids go to college, he'll try coaching again if a team wants to have him.  

Packers' coach Mike McCarthy said football had nothing to do with Greene's departure -- except for the time commitment that all coaches seem to face. McCarthy said Greene provided, "an incredible amount of energy, passion, and knowledge each and every day he was with us."  

Greene's resignation comes a couple days after Packers' quarterback coach Ben McAdoo was named the new offensive coordinator of the New York Giants.
