Packers Hire Defensive Coordinator

Packers Hire Defensive Coordinator

Reports surfaced earlier in the week that the team will name former Cleveland Browns head coach Mike Pettine as its new defensive coordinator.

During the 2017 season, Pettine worked as a consultant for the Seattle Seahawks. He spent time with the Jets (2009-12) and Bills (2013) and had his units ranked near the top of the league.

Pettine was sacked in Cleveland in 2015, but consistently his more talented defenses in Buffalo and NY were among the league's best.

Packers head coach Mike McCarthy interviewed Pettine for the defensive coordinator's job Tuesday.

Mike Pettine, now 51 years old, wasn't employed by an National Football League team in 2017 but he did spend the season with the Seattle Seahawks studying their defense.

The Packers fired Capers after a 7-9 season ended with Green Bay ranked 22nd in total defense and 26th in points allowed. Philbin is expected to replace offensive coordinator Edgar Bennett, who won't return to the team in 2018.

Apart from Pettine, the Packers also interviewed three of Capers' assistants - linebackers coach Winston Moss, cornerbacks coach Joe Whitt and safeties coach Darren Perry - for the job.

Pettine, formerly the head coach of the Cleveland Browns, is from the Baltimore Ravens' model of aggressive defense. Also departing Green Bay are quarterbacks coach Alex Van Pelt and Luke Getsy, who left to become the offensive coordinator at Mississippi.
