Packers to name ex-Browns coach Mike Pettine defensive coordinator

Packers to name ex-Browns coach Mike Pettine defensive coordinator

The Packers will interview Mike Pettine for their vacant defensive coordinator job, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. He previously worked under Rex Ryan with stops that included the Baltimore Ravens in several defensive roles, and New York Jets and Bills as defensive coordinator. It must have gone very well.

He went 10-22 in his two seasons as the Browns head coach.

He was hired as the head coach of the Cleveland Browns in 2014, and was sacked after the 2015 season.

Pettine was sacked in Cleveland in 2015, but consistently his more talented defenses in Buffalo and NY were among the league's best. Capers had not finished with a top-10 defense since the Packers' Super Bowl season of 2010, when it ranked fifth. In his first year with the Jets, they finished first in yards and points allowed. Both were in the running for the Packers job.

His one year in Buffalo was another top 10 finish.

The two years in Cleveland were not quite as good. It was the first time in almost 30 years that the Browns held first place in any division that late into a season. Prior to that, however, Pettine was a successful defensive coordinator. Moss also interviewed with the Detroit Lions about their head coaching job.

Green Bay's defense has basically become a laughingstock over the last few seasons as team seem to be able to throw deep on them nearly at will in the third and fourth quarters of games.
