Former Browns coach Mike Pettine to be Packers defensive coordinator, report says

REPORT: Packers expected to hire Mike Pettine as defensive coordinator

Just hours after Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported Tuesday night that the Packers hired Mike Pettine as their defensive coordinator, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported Wednesday that Joe Philbin has returned to Green Bay as the Packers' offensive coordinator.

The Green Bay Packers have reportedly found their new defensive coordinator. Pettine would replace Dom Capers, who was sacked earlier this month after nine years with the team.

His units were ranked in the top 10 in total defenses in the National Football League every one of those seasons, earning him a two-year stint as head coach of the Browns.

Pettine spent the last two seasons out of the league.

Moyes responds to shock Chelsea link to West Ham attacker
The 48-year-old is now considering an option in bringing Carroll to Stamford Bridge in the mid-season transfer market. However, he left Swansea City and made a switch to Tottenham Hotspur after rejecting the Premier League winners.

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 were also attached to Los Angeles Chargers' defensive coordinator Gus Bradley.

He was hired as the head coach of the Cleveland Browns in 2014, and was sacked after the 2015 season.

Prior to that job, he spent the previous five seasons as the defensive coordinator of Rex Ryan's New York Jets (2009-12) teams and the Buffalo Bills (2013). He's had roles including assistant offensive line coach, tight ends coach, offensive line coach and eventually he became the offensive coordinator from 2007-11.

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.
