Duluth native, former Bulldog Noah Pauley awarded coaching fellowship with Green Bay Packers
Duluth native Noah Pauley, a Central High School graduate who went on to play and coach at Minnesota Duluth, will work with the Green Bay Packers over the next two months as part of the NFL's Bill Walsh Diversity Coaching Fellowship.
DULUTH — Former Minnesota Duluth wide receiver and assistant coach Noah Pauley has been selected to work with the Green Bay Packers over the next two months as part of the NFL's Bill Walsh Diversity Coaching Fellowship. The Duluth native and Central High School graduate is currently the wide receivers coach at North Dakota State in Fargo.
Pauley was one of 12 coaches selected to join the staff of Packers head coach Matt LaFleur for offseason workout programs and minicamps in Green Bay. Each of the 12 coaches selected will focus on a position group and assist with special teams. The Bill Walsh Diversity Coaching Fellowship was created by the NFL to help increase the number of full-time minority coaches in the league.
"The program's objective is to use NFL clubs' offseason workout programs and minicamps to give talented coaches opportunities to observe, participate, gain experience and ultimately gain a full-time NFL coaching position," wrote the Packers in Wednesday's announcement .
A three-sport athlete at Central (football, basketball and baseball), Pauley caught passes for four seasons at UMD from 2007-2010 — winning two NCAA Division II national championships — before joining the Bulldogs coaching staff as a graduate assistant in 2013 and 2014. He was UMD's offensive coordinator and wide receivers coach from 2016-18 before joining the Bison of the Football Championship Subdivision in 2019.
