The Packers are preparing to hire Mike Pettine as their defensive coordinator, 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 fired Dom Capers on January 1 after Green Bay finished 22nd in total defense. The Packers last finished with a top-10 defense in their Super Bowl season of 2010 when they ranked fifth.
