Former Browns coach Mike Pettine to be Packers defensive coordinator, report says

Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that the Packers are "preparing" to nab former Cleveland Browns coach, as well as former Buffalo Bills and New York Jets defensive coordinator Mike Pettine as their defensive coordinator.

The Green Bay Packers have reportedly found their new defensive coordinator.

During the 2017 season, Pettine worked as a consultant for the Seattle Seahawks. With the Jets from 2009 to 2012, Pettine's defenses ranked first, third, fifth and eighth.

He's been out of the league for two years.

Already with the worst-ranked defense heading into the season, the Browns dedicated money in free agency and draft picks to that side of the ball with the hope of improving, but the defensive woes continued to plague the team all throughout 2015. He hired Joe Philbin, the former coach, to rejoin his staff likely as offensive coordinator to replace Edgar Bennett, who will not return. Also departing Green Bay are quarterbacks coach Alex Van Pelt and Luke Getsy, who left to become the offensive coordinator at Mississippi.

Given the Browns' head coaching gig, he did about as well with his two seasons as any of the recent two-and-done guys: 10-22, one more win than current Vikings offensive coordinator (and Detroit Lions head-coaching candidate) Pat Shurmur.

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