Edgar Bennett (born February 15, 1969 in Jacksonville, Florida) is a former running back and former offensive coordinator who played and coached for the Green Bay Packers of the National Football League (NFL). He played for the Packers from 1992-1997.
Bennett started his Packer career as a fullback, but he became the starting running back in 1995 and gained 1,067 yards rushing, the first Packer to rush for 1,000 yards in a season since Terdell Middleton in 1978. As both a fullback and a running back, Bennett excelled as a receiver leading the Packers in receptions. He continued as the starting running back throughout the 1996 season, but in the latter half, Dorsey Levens was receiving significant playing time at running back. Bennett's career as a Packer culminated in their Super Bowl XXXI victory. He ruptured his Achilles tendon in the 1997 preseason and did not play that year. Bennett played with the Chicago Bears in 1998 and 1999, but following his retirement, Bennett rejoined the Packer organization where he served as the running backs coach from 2001-2010, and the receivers coach from 2011-2014. From 2015-2017, he was the offensive coordinator for the Packers.
In January 2018, Jon Gruden hired Bennett to be wide receivers coach for the Oakland Raiders.
