Packers announce coaching changes on defense

Van Pelt also started as the Packers RB coach, but back in 2012. He hired McCarthy as head coach the following year, and the Packers won six NFC North titles under his watch. 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.

McCarthy fired defensive coordinator Dom Capers after Green Bay's 35-11 loss in Detroit on Sunday.

The organization is searching for a general manager while Ted Thompson transitions to a senior adviser role in the front office.

James Campen the coach of the offensive line and the team's longest-tenured assistant coach with the Packers also is a possibility for the job of offensive coordinator. In all, Green Bay defenders have made 17 appearances in the Pro Bowl during Capers' tenure.

But as the days continue and the more that comes out in Green Bay, I've become somewhat concerned with whether the Packers are actually moving on from Thompson. A league source said cornerbacks coach Joe Whitt and safeties coach Darren Perry are both candidates for the job, though McCarthy figures to take long looks at outside candidates as well.

McCarthy, who is fiercely loyal to his assistant coaches, doesn't often make wholesale changes to the staff.

Two sources said coach Mike McCarthy had made a decision to remove longtime assistant coach Edgar Bennett from the offensive coordinator position he had held since 2015. 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. This is about doing what's in the best interests of the Green Bay Packers.

McCarthy's 12-year partnership with GM Ted Thompson was highly successful and he's obviously hoping for a similar relationship with Thompson's successor, but he acknowledged the priority is what Murphy is looking for at the top of the football operation.

And most (but not all) of the team's failures since the Super Bowl can be traced to personnel shortages more than coaching.

"The draft-and-develop still needs to be the core of who you are", McCarthy said. All aspects of football operations will be evaluated once the coaching staff is set.

We all saw what backup quarterback Brett Hundley gave the Green Bay Packers in 2017.
