Before Luke Getsy was the Chicago Bears offensive coordinator, he served as Aaron Rodgers’ quarterbacks coach with the Green Bay Packers from 2019-21. So Getsy knows Rodgers well.

Rodgers is once again in the news — this time after sharing his experience using psychedelics during trips to South America to help with his mental health and well-being.

Getsy, who spent the previous three seasons coaching Rodgers, said he had no involvement in those trips.

“I was not invited on those trips,” Getsy said with a smile. “I didn’t know all that stuff. I haven’t watched that yet but obviously I’ve been informed by a lot of people about that stuff. Whatever it takes, I guess.”

During a recent appearance on the Aubrey Marcus Podcast, Rodgers revealed that the use of the ayahuasca plant made him feel a “magical experience” and led to the “best season of my career.”

Rodgers has won back-to-back MVP awards since those trips to South America, which he said isn’t a coincidence.

Getsy was later asked if he would have liked to be invited on those trips.

“Ehhhh,” he said, before exiting stage left.
