Looks like Dom Capers is the guy. Made a name for himself running a 3-4, but has experience using a 3-4, 4-3 hybrid. Perfect. Finally, a defense that will confuse the opposing offense. Capers is experienced and well respected, if nothing else. I guess Mike Vandermause's blog post from the GBPG looks even sillier now than it did last week. Sheesh, two potential DC's landed jobs somewhere else and this guy's freaking out (Jan, 15th):
Will someone out there take this job?
Maybe it's not a question of whom the Packers will name as their next defensive coordinator, but rather, can Mike McCarthy find someone highly qualified who wants the job?
Fair or not, there's an impression that the leading candidates have given McCarthy a stiff-arm to the face. Mike Nolan interviewed with McCarthy and took Denver's DC position. Gregg Williams interviewed with McCarthy and today was named the Saints’ DC.
