The Packers had a long list of candidates interviewing for the DC position but after a chat with former Cleveland Browns Head Coach Mike Pettine on Tuesday night it appears the search has quickly come to an end.

It'll be interesting to see exactly how Pettine puts together the pieces Green Bay already has in place-and what new pieces new Packers general manager Brian Gutekunst brings in for Pettine to play with.

He was hired as the head coach of the Cleveland Browns in 2014, and was sacked after the 2015 season. He worked this season as a consultant for the Seahawks. He spent time with the Jets (2009-12) and Bills (2013) and had his units ranked near the top of the league.

Green Bay coach Mike McCarthy announced last week the team would interview Packers assistants Winston Moss, Darren Perry and Joe Whitt for the job.

McCarthy also apparently wanted to speak with Los Angeles Chargers defensive coordinator Gus Bradley, who received a contract extension to remain with the Chargers.

Offensive coordinator Edgar Bennett will not return to the team, and many of his duties are expected to be taken up by Joe Philbin. He's had roles including assistant offensive line coach, tight ends coach, offensive line coach and eventually he became the offensive coordinator from 2007-11.

The Packers fired Capers after a 7-9 season ended with Green Bay ranked 22nd in total defense and 26th in points allowed.
