The Packers will interview Mike Pettine for their vacant defensive coordinator job, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Pettine spent the 2017 season in a consulting role in Seattle. He was the defensive coordinator of the Jets (2009-12) and Bills (2013) before the Browns hired him as head coach.

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

The Packers are seeking a replacement for Dom Capers, who they fired January 1.

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

  1. Mike Pettine can help us. We Packers fans wish to embrace the Browns’ culture. They try harder than our Packers.

  2. I think he could help them. He wasn’t the reason the Browns were bad. They got much worse after they fired him.

  3. This does not look bad just because it involves Mike Pettine and the Browns. Unless you’re a Browns fan.

  4. An aggressive gm, our OC from the last SB year, and a defensive minded former hc at dc. I’m liking the way things are shaping up!

  5. He’ll bring that winning culture for sure.

    Look at the MN fans throwing stones from their glass houses….apparently oblivious to the fact that their current OC is a former Cleveland Browns head coach.

    Pettine would be a good hire for the Pack.

    Hell, Pettine would be a good hire for the Browns.

  7. Pettine will make a difference, and Packer fans will appreciate his approach. And it would appear that he has a front office that will provide talented players and allow him to succeed.

    So am I.
    The changes don’t matter on offense because AR is the offense, no matter who is coaching.
    The GM comes from the inside and gets the approval of the coach and QB.
    The coach that a good number of shareholders wanted fired, gets more power.

    The only potential change is a DC from the outside.

    Same old same old in GB.
    I love it.

  9. Pettine won 7 games with the Browns.. 7 (that is a lot)! Then the GM and owner forced him to take Johnny ‘Not-Ready for Life-let-alone’ Football, and had no QB, RBs, or WRs, but somehow was the problem here (after having a very successful Defense with the Bills, Jets and was LBs coach with the Ravens)…

  10. Same old same old in GB.
    I love it.

    And your team has had more, or less success than the Packers over the last decade?

  11. The fact that they even considered Winston Moss and Darren Perry tells you everything you need to know about Mike McCarthy.

    What an absolute DOLT!

    They need to nuke the defensive staff and start over.
