Packers to hire Pettine as new DC

REPORT: Packers expected to hire Mike Pettine as defensive coordinator

The expectation is that the Green Bay Packers will hire the former Browns head coach to serve as defensive coordinator.

It'll be interesting to see exactly how Pettine puts together the pieces Green Bay already has in place-and what new pieces new Packers general manager Brian Gutekunst brings in for Pettine to play with.

He went 10-22 in his two seasons in Cleveland.

Pettine spent the 2017 season in a consulting role in Seattle.

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.




Mike Pettine, now 51 years old, wasn't employed by an National Football League team in 2017 but he did spend the season with the Seattle Seahawks studying their defense.

McCarthy also apparently wanted to speak with Los Angeles Chargers defensive coordinator Gus Bradley, who received a contract extension to remain with the Chargers. Philbin is expected to replace offensive coordinator Edgar Bennett, who won't return to the team in 2018.

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.

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.
