Packers to hire Mike Pettine as defensive coordinator

The Packers will name former Browns coach Mike Pettine their defensive coordinator, according to reports. He then took over as head coach for Cleveland in 2014 but was sacked in January 2016, finishing with a 10-22 record as the Browns dropped 18 of his final 21 games with the team. Pettine also was defensive coordinator for the Jets (2009-12) and Bills (2013).

The Packers ranked among the league's top 10 in both points and offensive yardage all five years Philbin was their offensive coordinator, and they led the NFL in yardage and were third in points in his final season in Green Bay. They had also had their eyes on Vic Fangio and Gus Bradley, but they didn't wait to interview them before deciding on Pettine for the job.

The blitz-heavy 3-4 scheme Pettine employs is similar to Capers', which should give the Packers defense a slightly easier time adjusting to his system.

The Browns finished the regular season without a victory and are now 1-31 in the last two seasons under head coach Hue Jackson. He's been a big reason for the consistent success the Packers have experienced over the last decade.


The Packers fired Capers after a 7-9 season ended with Green Bay ranked 22nd in total defense and 26th in points allowed.

In looking to continue adding experience to his staff, head coach Mike McCarthy has now apparently settled on former Miami Dolphins head coach Joe Philbin to be his new offensive coordinator. His defenses all finished in the top 10.

Green Bay coach Mike McCarthy announced last week the team would interview Packers assistants Winston Moss, Darren Perry and Joe Whitt for the job.
