One and Done: Scooter McLean Resigns as Packers Coach
Dec. 17, 1958 – Ray (Scooter) McLean resigns as Packers coach after leading the team to a dismal 1-10-1 record. McLean accepts a job as backfield coach with the Detroit Lions, a team coached by his good friend, George Wilson. “It (my resignation) was best for everybody and everything concerned,” McLean says. “I’m really going to miss Green Bay after eight years. There are a lot of wonderful people here.” McLean served as the Packers backfield coach from 1951-57. Prior to that, he was a halfback with the Chicago Bears (1940-47).
