ESPN.com: Mike Pettine to be Packers' defensive coordinator

REPORT: Packers expected to hire Mike Pettine as defensive coordinator

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 filled both of their vacant coordinator positions quickly.

Packers fans may worry about Pettine's history with the Browns - two years and a 10-22 record, and his defenses there were not very good - but that's not unusual, after all, for the Browns.

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. Vic Fangio, the Bears' defensive coordinator the last three seasons, had been in the running. His Jets defenses ranked first, third, fifth and eighth.

'All signs' pointing to Matt Patricia as Giants head coach
The Patriots will play the Tennessee Titans in the divisional round of the playoffs on Saturday. The New York Giants may have identified their man.


Pettine would succeed Dom Capers following his firing earlier this month and join Joe Philbin after Packers coach Mike McCarthy hired the former Dolphins coach earlier this week. They were also attached to Los Angeles Chargers' defensive coordinator Gus Bradley.

Offensive coordinator Edgar Bennett will not return to the team, and many of his duties are expected to be taken up by Joe Philbin.

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.
