Packers name Browns' Mike Pettine to replace Dom Capers

Packers name Browns' Mike Pettine to replace Dom Capers

On Tuesday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reported the Packers were "preparing to hire" Mike Pettine.

Philbin was the Indianapolis Colts assistant head coach and offensive line coach the past two seasons, but he spent nine seasons with the Packers from 2003 through 2011, filling a variety of roles.

However, Pettine's defenses finished 20th in the league in points allowed in each of the next three years, and the 2015 Browns were 29th in points allowed and 27th in yards allowed.

As a result, Pettine's potential hiring may have caused a ripple effect. He spent the 2013 season as the Bills' defensive coordinator, and his unit ranked 10th.

Pettine's scheme, like Ryan's, is rooted in a 3-4 system that relies heavily on press man cornerbacks and myriad blitzes.

Pettine also worked under Ryan with the, for whom Ryan was the defensive coordinator.

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

Based on multiple reports, Pettine agreed to a contract and will replace Dom Capers after an extensive search by head coach Mike McCarthy that included former Jacksonville Jaguars head coach Gus Bradley and Chicago Bears defensive coordinator Vic Fangio.

His one year in Buffalo was another top 10 finish.

Green Bay coach Mike McCarthy announced last week the team would interview Packers assistants Winston Moss, Darren Perry and Joe Whitt for the job.
