After nine years the Packers have parted ways with defensive coordinator Dom Capers, according to multiple reports.
Capers came to Green Bay in 2009 after head coach Mike McCarthy fire Bob Sanders, and Capers’ defense saw results early on. In each of his first two years as the defensive coordinator, the Packers finished in the top five in total defense. That includes the squad that went on to win Super Bowl XLV against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Since then the Packers defense has slipped, not finishing in the top ten since 2010. That includes this past season that saw the Packers give up an average of 24 points per game, and miss the playoffs for the first time since 2008. Coincidentally the last time the Packers made a change at defensive coordinator.
The Packers also fired inside linebackers coach Scott McCurley and defensive line coach Mike Trgovac, according to a report by ESPN.
