Packers name Browns' Mike Pettine to replace Dom Capers

Former Cleveland Browns head coach Mike Pettine is set to be named defensive coordinator the Green Bay Packers. He worked this season as a consultant for the Seahawks.

Pettine, 51, has not coached in the National Football League since going 10-22 in 2014-2015 as the Cleveland Browns' head coach. His defenses finished in the top 10 for takeaways during five of his seven years as a defensive coordinator or head coach.

It appears that the Green Bay Packers are nearing the final steps to having their new defensive coordinator to replace Dom Capers. After moving up through the ranks in Baltimore, Pettine spent four years as Rex Ryan's defensive coordinator with the Jets and one season under Ryan with the Bills.

Pettine replaces Dom Capers, who was sacked after spending nine seasons as Green Bay's defensive coordinator.

The hiring of Mike Pettine fills the last major position for the Packers.

Pettine would succeed Dom Capers, who was sacked last week after a disappointing 7-9 season.

McCarthy can count on Pettine to coordinate an aggressive defense capable of creating disruption. In his first year with the Jets, they finished first in yards and points allowed. Moss also interviewed with the Detroit Lions about their head coaching job. He went 7-9 in his first year in Cleveland but was sacked after a 3-13 season in 2015.
