GREEN BAY - Former Packers player Bryce Paup is leaving the Green Bay Southwest football program. Tuesday he stepped down to accept a job in college football, after leading the Trojans for six ears.

Paul went 43-21 as the Trojans head coach, but couldn't pass up going back to his alma mater.  He accepted a coaching position with Northern Iowa, where he played before being drafted by the Packers in the sixth round of the 1990 NFL draft. A source in the UNI Athletic Department said it's just a matter of dotting the I's and crossing the T's.

It's expected Paup will be a linebacker coach for the Panthers. He told his former team Monday in a meeting he would be leaving. Paup led the Trojans to back-to-back 10-win seasons in 2011 and 2012.
