GREEN BAY -

Green Bay Packers assistant offensive line coach Joel Hilgenberg says he is resigning from the team.

Coach Mike McCarthy announced Hilgenberg's decision on Friday. Hilgenberg has been on the Packers staff since 2011. He served as offensive quality control coach before moving to the offensive line in 2012.

The 51-year-old Hilgenberg says in a statement issued by the team that he is leaving to spend more time with his wife and daughter. He thanked the Packers for the opportunity.

McCarthy says he respects Hilgenberg's decision.

Outside linebackers coach Kevin Greene resigned earlier this offseason, citing the same reasons.
