ESPN reports that former Browns head coach Mike Pettine is expected to head to Green Bay to be the Packers new defensive coordinator.
Pettine was the Browns' head coach for two years before he was sacked after compiling a 10-22 record. 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.
Pettine had a top-10 defense in each of his five seasons as a coordinator, including first (2009), third (2010), fifth (2011) and eighth-place (2012) rankings with the Jets and a 10th-place showing with the Bills in 2013.
Packers now preparing to hire former Browns' HC Mike Pettine as their defensive coordinator, per league source. The team posted records of 7-9 and 3-13 under Pettine, and he was let go in favor of hiring Hue Jackson.

It would have been the Chinese company's biggest opportunity to break into the US market with its smartphones. A report from The Information claims that the same "political pressure" situation happened here.
It appears that the Green Bay Packers are nearing the final steps to having their new defensive coordinator to replace Dom Capers. His defenses all finished in the top 10.
McCarthy also apparently wanted to speak with Los Angeles Chargers defensive coordinator Gus Bradley, who received a contract extension to remain with the Chargers.
Coach Mike McCarthy also interviewed three in-house candidates for the job: linebackers coach Winston Moss, cornerbacks coach Joe Whitt and safeties coach Darren Perry.
