Although coach Mike McCarthy said that "everything top to bottom will be evaluated," he's "very confident" that Dom Capers is going to remain Packers defensive coordinator.
No decisions have been made on the defensive side of the ball, but McCarthy respects, trusts, and has "great faith" in Capers. "Let's state the obvious. We gave up 579 yards of offense," said McCarthy. "... But you don't make knee-jerk decisions." Tue, Jan 15, 2013 05:22:00 PM

According to NFL Network's Steve Wyche, Packers LBs coach Winston Moss is "pretty much certain" to be new Raiders GM Reggie McKenzie's top choice as head coach.

Wyche's colleague Jason LaCanfora agrees, suggesting there's "heavy expectation" that Moss will take over in Oakland, bringing along secondary coach Darren Perry as defensive coordinator.

Defensive line coach Mike Trgovac indicated that he will not leave the Packers for the opportunity for a coordinator job.

"I will do that again," Trgovac said of running his own defense. "It's just not the right time." Trgovac was mentioned as a possibility for both the Eagles and the Cardinals. Linebackers coach Winston Moss and safeties coach Darren Perry remain the most likely candidates for coordinator positions.

Packers safeties coach Darren Perry has not yet been contacted about the defensive coordinator vacancies in Arizona or Philadelphia.

The Eagles were said to have "definite" interest in Perry, though CSN Philly is now reporting that he is not atop the team's "wish list." He's been mentioned as a candidate for the Cardinals and even the Raiders as well. Teams are prohibited from talking to Perry directly until after the Super Bowl.

The unnamed Packers player accused of sexually assaulting two women admits sexual contact but insists it was consensual.

So the allegation is a non-consensual three-way? The women initially said that multiple players were involved, but only one player is under investigation. This is the third NFL player accused of sexual assault in the past year, joining Ben Roethlisberger and Colts DT Eric Foster. Jail time and/or a suspension could be forthcoming.

Police are investigating an undisclosed Packers player in connection with an alleged sexual assault Saturday morning in Lake Delton, Wisconsin.

Seven Packers players were present at a condo where the assault allegedly occurred. The players have been interviewed and released, though an investigation is ongoing to determine one player's involvement in the incident.

The Packers have added ex-Panthers defensive coordinator Mike Trgovac as defensive line coach.

Trgovac led an exodus of Panthers defensive coaches this week, all of whom were peeved that they weren't offered contract extensions before the end of the season.

Packers hired Dom Capers as defensive coordinator.

He chose the Pack over the Giants. The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel expects Capers to run a "hybrid" scheme, but he may ultimately lean towards a 3-4. The Packers have enough linebackers and space eaters up front for the three-man front, although it may take away from LE Aaron Kampman's strengths. Green Bay will keep man-to-man coverage in the secondary.

NFL Network's Adam Schefter reports Patriots assistant Dom Capers is in Green Bay interviewing for the vacant defensive coordinator position.

The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel had previously reported Jim Haslett as the front-runner, but Capers' inclusion could change that. Schefter believes Capers is sure to land a job with greater responsibilities outside of New England.

After being scratched off the Rams' head-coaching list, Jim Haslett has emerged as the "front runner" to be the Packers' next defensive coordinator.

Haslett also hasn't received interest elsewhere. The Packers missed on their top two targets (Gregg Williams and Mike Nolan) and it isn't hard to get why. Interviewing in Green Bay this time of year would turn almost anyone off.

The Packers interviewed Rams interim coach Jim Haslett for their vacancy at defensive coordinator Tuesday.

Haz is keeping his bases covered in case he doesn't get the Rams' full-time coaching job, which he probably won't. The Saints are hot after Gregg Williams, the Packers' top target, so Haslett would be a nice fallback option.

NFL.com's Adam Schefter reports that Eagles secondary coach Sean McDermott has joined Mike Nolan and Gregg Williams in the race to be the Packers' next defensive coordinator.

John Harbaugh brought obvious attention to the Eagles' DBs coach position. He served in the role in 2008. Green Bay will likely ultimately lean towards the experience with either Williams or Nolan, but McDermott could easily still surface elsewhere. If so, he'll owe a lot to Harbaugh and DeSean Jackson.

Gregg Williams has reportedly made it a two-horse race with Mike Nolan to be the next Packers defensive coordinator.

It won't be too hard for the Packers from here. If they want to stay in a 4-3, they'll pick Williams. If they want a "hybrid" defense or a 3-4, Nolan will be the choice. Nolan would likely also be the cheaper coach to hire.

Former 49ers coach Mike Nolan will formally interview for the Packers' defensive coordinator opening on Thursday.

They might look to have Nolan sign a contract immediately. The Packers are thought to be sold on installing a 3-4 defense in 2009 and Nolan will bring that. However, he will need more pass-rushing linebackers to be successful.
Thu, Jan 8, 2009 08:13:00 AM

The Green Bay Press-Gazette confirms that Mike Nolan is the clear favorite to be the Packers' next defensive coordinator.

One source gave Nolan a "90% chance" of landing the job and another said similar things on the Bowl circuit. The Packers haven't formally interviewed Nolan, but coach Mike McCarthy knows him well and may not even need to.
