Dom Capers out as Packers defensive coordinator

Share

The path back to Green Bay has opened for Ben McAdoo, the franchise where he coached first tight ends then quarterbacks from 2006-13. One league source had said on Tuesday that McCarthy meant to change offensive coordinators. Philbin spent the past two seasons as the Indianapolis Colts' assistant head coach and offensive line coach under Chuck Pagano, who was sacked earlier this week. Long-time defensive coordinator Dom Capers is gone.

A number of other highly regarded defensive coordinators should also be available, though some of them, such as Fangio, are candidates for head-coaching jobs.

Green Bay is interviewing several in-house candidates such as Russ Ball, Eliot Wolf, and Brian Gutekunst.

Still, Kotb, who officially scored the hosting gig alongside Guthrie on Tuesday, said she isn't paying any mind to money matters. The former Fox News host's "monster deal" is as high as $20 million per year for just hosting " Today's " 9 a.m. hour.

Striking the right balance will be up to the new GM and McCarthy together to get the Packers back into championship contention after the most disappointing season in Green Bay in almost a decade. "Additionally, I want to thank every player that has stepped on the field for us". Green Bay also has interest in Colts assistant Joe Philbin. Before that, Bennett, a running back for the Packers from 1992 through 1997, coached his old position from 2001 through 2010 under Mike Sherman and McCarthy.

Despite the clear injury-related reasons for the poorer performance, the Packers are making a bunch of changes to their offense this offseason. During all five of his seasons as the offensive coordinator, the Packers would finish top 10 in points and yards.

Thompson was hired as the Packers' general manager in 2005, and the team had a 125-82-1 record and won Super Bowl XLV under his watch. On a personal note, Ted's work ethic, humility and loyalty are almost unparalleled, and it has been one of the great honors of my life to work beside him. It needs to be answered throughout football operations.

"We had a hell of a partnership for 12 years", McCarthy said about working with Thompson.

No matter what you think of McCarthy, the prospect of losing him and creating even more upheaval is something the Packers can't afford.

Needless to say, the Packers are not messing around.

Opinion polls suggested Britons remain roughly evenly divided on the subject. "My mind is actually changing on all this", he said. If it's a straight " Remain " or " Leave ", there's a risk a vote on principle will reinforce Brexit.

"But we did not play to the standard of the Green Bay Packers and it's my responsibility to make sure we get better and get back to that".
