Green Bay Packers hire Mike Pettine as DC

The Green Bay Packers have reportedly hired Indianapolis Colts offensive line coach and assistant head coach Joe Philbin as their new offensive coordinator.

Bradley reportedly signed a new contract to remain defensive coordinator of the Los Angeles Chargers on Tuesday, and Fangio, whose contract expired on January 8, could be retained in Chicago by new head coach Matt Nagy.

Pettine, who interviewed with the team Tuesday, was a consultant for the Seahawks this season. His last job in the National Football League was as Head Coach of the Browns and before that, he spent four seasons as defensive coordinator for the N.Y. Jets under Rex Ryan and one season in Buffalo as DC under Doug Marrone.

Nine years later, he has the same thing in Mike Pettine.

The Packers fired Capers after a 7-9 season ended with Green Bay ranked 22nd in total defense and 26th in points allowed.

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. They had also had their eyes on Vic Fangio and Gus Bradley, but they didn't wait to interview them before deciding on Pettine for the job.

The Green Bay Packers' coaching shake up is now about to come to a culmination.

The #Packers have wrapped up their period of uncertainty: Joe Philbin is the offensive coordinator.
