NEW YORK (AP) - Jeff Fisher is back in the NFL as a coach, and back on the prestigious NFL competition committee.
"It's an honor and a privilege to be a part of the committee," Fisher said. "I've been on it since 2000. I was a non-voting member last year and participated to a certain extent with them. I was just thrilled that the Commissioner and the rest of the committee welcomed me back."
"It's an honor, obviously," Whisenhunt said. "The integrity of play in the NFL as well as the quality of play is always extremely important to us, to fans, coaches and players. One of the main priorities of the committee is to see that stays at a high level. I am flattered. It's a privilege and certainly comes with a great deal of responsibility."
Whisenhunt also serves on the coaches subcommittee, which makes recommendations to the competition committee.
"I was excited and honored," Murphy said of being added to the committee. "It will be a new experience for me, and I am looking forward to representing the Packers in this capacity on a league level."
Murphy also played an active role in labor negotiations with the union last year during the lockout.
The committee consists of club personnel only, but other key NFL personnel serve as liaisons, including executive vice president of football operations Ray Anderson.
