  • Green Bay Packers: Two defensive assistant coaches let go, per report

Capers came to Green Bay in 2009 after head coach Mike McCarthy fire Bob Sanders, and Capers' defense saw results early on.

The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel confirmed the reports by ESPN and NFL Network.

The team also fired inside linebackers coach Scott McCurley and defensive line coach Mike Trgovac, according to Demovsky's reporting. Of course, he's been Green Bay's DC since 2009. They were fifth in total defense and second in points the following year, and Capers' defense was a big reason Green Bay went on to win Super Bowl XLV.

The 67-year-old Capers said last month that he planned to coach "as long as I enjoy it".

Action 2 Sports director Chris Roth says to keep an eye on Vic Fangio, the defensive coordinator for the Chicago Bears. He was the assistant linebackers coach for the last four seasons.

He was twice a head coach - both with expansion teams (the Carolina Panthers in 1995-98, and the Houston Texans in 2001-2005) - and was sacked from both jobs.

This season, the Packers rank 22nd in total defense, the same mark they had past year.

Capers, a former head coach of the then expansion Carolina Panthers and Houston Texans, has been Green Bay's defensive coordinator the past nine seasons.

If Green Bay opts to go outside the organization, the Journal-Sentinel reported that candidates may be Chicago defensive coordinator Vic Fangio, Gregg Williams of the Cleveland Browns and Steve Spagnuolo, who served as interim head coach of the New York Giants after Ben McAdoo was sacked.

"Packers defensive coordinator Dom Capers was sacked following Sunday night's loss at Detroit, per a source".
