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

He joins a new-look Packers staff, as head coach Mike McMcarthy has shaken things up after Green Bay missed the playoffs for the first time since 2008.

Pettine, 51, has been out of the league since getting fired in 2015 after two largely unsuccessful seasons with the Cleveland Browns. His Jets defenses ranked first, third, fifth and eighth.

Coming from Ryan's complex 3-4 based defenses, Pettine spent this year helping out with Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll's 4-3 based Cover 3.

Prior to that job, he spent the previous five seasons as the defensive coordinator of Rex Ryan's New York Jets (2009-12) teams and the Buffalo Bills (2013).

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

McCarthy also apparently wanted to speak with Los Angeles Chargers defensive coordinator Gus Bradley, who received a contract extension to remain with the Chargers. He's had roles including assistant offensive line coach, tight ends coach, offensive line coach and eventually he became the offensive coordinator from 2007-11.

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.

The Packers dumped Capers on January 1 after they finished 22nd in the National Football League in total defense.
